“A fast and reasonably flat desert loop starting at the Phoenix Sonoran Preserve Apache Wash trailhead.”— Rael B
Most of the trail is hardpack with a few shallow, sandy washes thrown in to keep you focused on the trail. A lack of significant rocky or technical stretches make this a fast and fun loop.
Several options exist for shortening the route, so keep your eyes out for the signs showing the connector trails if you want to take that option.
