Runner Notes

This is an awesome trail for running, with continuous rollers and great climbs. The views are spectacular.

This well-signed route includes spectacular views and great rolling climbs. Use the Horseshoe Trail or the Gateway Loop Trail for access. This trail ties into the Bell Pass Loop or Maricopa County Land including the Pemberton Trail. Bring your own water - this is desert climate at its best!
