Likely In-Season!
Overview
A popular trail in the northeast corner of the park, providing easy access to several other longer trails as well as smaller, localized systems.

History
South Mountain Park was created in 1924 as Phoenix Mountain Park. Much of the initial trails were created in the 1930s through the efforts of the Civilian Conservation Corps.


Hike
The trailhead is accessed from the parking lot at the end of 46th Street. After passing some condominiums on the left, the well-signed trail begins its path up into Beverly Canyon, eventually settling onto a course that carries it beneath power lines high overhead. As the trail gently climbs, the city of Tempe is visible to the northeast (the landmark of A Mountain can be seen under favorable conditions). At about 1.4 miles in, the trail crosses the National Trail. From this point, signage is non-existent and social trails abound (while getting truly lost would be hard to do, a map will make the trip a lot less frustrating). After crossing Pima Wash, the trail climbs steadily to a saddle at Scott Ridge that overlooks the communities of Ahwatukee and Chandler. From this point the trail descends sharply over a quarter-mile to its terminus at the Desert Classic Trail.

As with most trails in this park, this route provides some opportunity for views of city lights. Clues of the mountain '92s geologic history and composition are everywhere for those who know how to tease them out. The trail is complemented by abundant examples of Sonoran plants and cactuses. Overall, this trail is a great option for those seeking an accessible, brief escape from the built environment without a large commitment of time and travel.

Water Sources
Water is available at the 46th Street lot from a municipal spigot located at the adjacent Javelina Canyon Trailhead.

Camping
Camping is not permitted.
