Another great South Mountain trail!
The parking lot was nearly full by the time I got there on a Saturday at 0800, and it doesn't look like there is any place for overflow parking. The lot is directly connected to Desert Foothills parkway.

The first 1/3 mile is paved, and the Desert Classic trail goes off to the East. There is one offshoot trail to some petroglyphs (see photos). It only took me 30 minutes to get to Telegraph Pass. I continued on the National Trail West to the ridge; there is a small man-made structure on that portion.

My photos are a bit hazy, as it was rainy.

I was watching the helicopter make multi-drops of people and supplies when, at one point, a stray horse wandered into the landing field (the gate was open). The guys unloading the supplies chased it around the field until it went back out the gate.

So now these guys are chasing it around the field again but this time they start pelting it with rocks. The horse was panicking and didn't know where to go. Rocks were being hurled at it from all directions. He ended up falling down after a really hard rock hit and it looked like he broke...
