Overview: This is a a medley of trails that have formed over years of use by local outdoor enthusiasts. Most of the trails were formed initially by ATV users and then, over years, forgotten or adopted by mountain bikers and hikers. None of the trails are named and typically have no purpose or destination and will continue until it runs into another trail. The land in question is very flat with 1 or 2 hills that dot the landscape to the south and a couple of washes that run north - south.

Hike: The trail starts from the southwest corner of the Sonoran Mountain Ranch Park. You are immediately faced with 2 options. You can follow a trail westward as it wraps around a low lying hill and then heads in a southwest direction toward the dam between East and West Wing Mountains. Or you can follow a trail that heads off in a northwest direction. Over the last 15 or so outings, this is the one I've gone to. Simply because there are more options once you get out into the desert. This northwest track will run for about 0.75 miles until it runs into a 4-way intersection. You can go south to make a loop with the first trail mentioned, you can go straight about 0.6 miles miles to the next intersection of trails (in this case, a north-south running wash), or you can turn northward and follow a bikers path that "Y"s off numerous times as it heads north. This is true for almost any direction you go. The further you go along a path the more "Y"s and the more options you have. I'll take a different trail every time (and I'm still adding on new trails that I haven't done before), just to vary distances and loops. I will try to upload a couple of the better GPS routes as possible suggestions.


Water Sources: There are bathrooms and a water fountain at the trailhead.

    KibaXSI writes: Take 67th Avenue North till it turns into Pyramid Peak Parkway. Continue along and the road will then force a right hand turn onto North Sonoran Mountain Ranch Road. Continue along until you reach North Chalfen Blvd. Make a left. There will be a park down the road on the right. Park here. The trails will start from the northwest end of the grassy field.
