Need to Know

Fee area (Saguaro National Park), but access is from a turnout on the side of a narrow neighborhood road. There is room for 1 or 2 vehicles. Park at the small turnout on your right with a ”no outlet” sign, follow the road about 0.2 miles to the Park Access and trailhead.

Description

The trail begins as an old overgrown roadbed that drops quickly down a hill and takes a right hand jog through a trail junction with the Veterans Trail. The trail becomes singletrack at this junction. The trail is crossed by other trails at times but the junctions are well marked. Watch for the metal trail signs that the National Park puts out as they are very helpful. There was one cross-trail intersection about a half mile from the trailhead that was unmarked so follow the footprints roughly straight ahead instead of getting sidetracked on the more worn cross-trail.

Near the end, the trail crosses a sandy wash with a natural rock dam with what appears to be Hohokam Morteros, i.e. Native American grinding tool depressions worn in the rock face. There is also an old windmill with a stock tank just below the rock dam. The trail ends at a three-way intersection with the Gila Monster Trail and the Coyote Pass Trail.
