“An easy loop around the west side of the McDowell Sonoran Preserve.”— Tom Dobson
Head uphill and over the Gateway Saddle for spectacular views of the north valley.
Heading past the saddle, cruise down a screaming downhill to the junction with the Windgate Pass Trail. Turn right on Windgate Pass Trail. Run rolling terrain for about a mile and you'll see the turn to the left onto the Desert Park Trail.
It's all downhill from here. You run around the mountain and under a few bridges back to the Gateway Trail.
