Note
Like the popular Dixie Peak 2,429, this is not a signed trail. If the trail is signed area closed, do NOT enter.


From the West
#1E is the first trail that turns off Perl Charles Trail #1A on the north side of Myrtle Creek. Since Valley View Trail #1E is not signed it's good to have a route on hand. Tread is like a firm gravel road. It travels well and is well defined.

Halfway up it crosses a ravine with a couple of Palo Verde trees that offer a hint of shade if you need to pause. Turn around and the name of this trail becomes crystal clear. Downtown Phoenix Arizona with a background of South Mountain tapering down in front of the Sierra Estrella Mountain Range.

Near the east end of the trail at a little saddle, yards north looks like something old has returned to rubble. Just a pile of rocks, nothing exciting.

5-10 yards east of the saddle is the unsigned junction with Basin Trail #1D.

Synopsis
Life moves pretty quick, don't let this little slice of heaven escape your hiking portfolio.
