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...
