Runner Notes

Lots of loose sand, wear gators if you plan to be moving fast.

Description

This is an easy/intermediate trail with minimal elevation change. However, the majority of this trail exists in the bottom of a seasonal dry wash, so running in areas of soft sand may be a challenge for some individuals. Keep your eyes peeled along this trail and you might see some petroglyphs. This run also offers excellent views of the various cacti found in the Sonoran Desert.

If you are heading southwest on the trail, you'll eventually climb out of the wash, curve around a series of hills, before connecting to Prophecy Wash trail. This area in particular (once you climb out of the wash and before connecting to the Prophecy Wash trail), offers excellent views of a saguaro forest with Wasson Peak in the distance.

Just to note, this trail could be listed as easy, but should be listed as easy/intermediate due to 1) no direct access to the trail, and 2) the majority of this trail being in a dry, sandy wash.
