Runner Notes

Sweetwater Preserve is one of the best locations for beginner trail runners as there isn't very much elevation gain but there is a ton of beautiful landscape mixed with great views.

Description

From the Roller Coaster Trail, you'll gain some elevation up to the spine and then turn east to loop back. Every trail in the Sweetwater Preserve will feel very similar, with desert vegetation populating the trail, and views of the Arizona desert abounding. The biggest changes in vegetation will coincide with the different levels of elevation gain for each trail.
