Trail shared by Glen Moore

A gentle portion of the Maricopa Trail.

Description

This portion of the Maricopa Trail goes from N New River Rd to the first gate, and eventually comes to an end near Anthem.

Near the western side of this trail, the trail will be almost flat. This side isnt strenuous, and there arent many obstacles to over come. There will be a slow, smooth ascent as you head closer to I-17.

As you continue your gentle climb, the terrain will get a bit more rolling, and youll have some ups and downs that add interest. Along this eastern portion, there will also be a number of small wash crossings, as well as one small creek crossing. Though these portions are dry 99% of the time, rains in Arizona often result in flash floods, so avoid use during or immediately following a rain storm.
