Finished Easter morning activities and was looking for a near by hike that wouldn't take the whole afternoon. Consulting "HikeArizona.com", typed in "Telegraph Pass" since I live near the South Mountain Preserve. A listing of near by hikes popped up. Noticed "Warrior Trail" listed as 3 miles away.

Didn't recognize this name, so I checked my South Mountain Guide. Warrior Trail was nowhere to be found. Curious and armed with the HikeArizona.com trail description, Lynn, "desert dog" Buster, and I headed for the southern terminus of 19th Avenue off of Dobbins Road.

Being thoroughly trained not to hike South Mountain on weekends (read: more hikers than parking spaces!), I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the trailhead to see only 2 other vehicles and plenty of open parking spaces. This was 1pm on a holiday weekend!

The first clue why this trail is somewhat unknown is the name - trail markers indicate "Ma - Ha - Tauk" Trail. I presume this is some Native dialect meaning "warrior".

Made the ~1 mile very steep accent of "Star Peak" taking the side trail near the Cross Cut Loop and Ma - Ha - Tauk intersection. Took in the view and headed back to the trailhead. Still plenty of spring flowers...

Havasu Canyon Trail - Sep 15 2014
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. Then as it was running up the main drag, another resident must have thought it got loose so he shooed it back into another open gate and back into the field. 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...
