Not FORE! the timid
by joebartels

Overview
Connects Trail #100 with Lookout Mtn Circ Trail #308. Majority of hike is through Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs golf course. Experience Troon Golf while praying nobody yells at you.


Hike
North and South ends of this trail are well established and signed. The core of the hike through the golf course is questionable.

The Phoenix Parks website offers stats and a map. The print map is useless. The online map is choppy. Scarce points are smack dab on the cart path. Perhaps just walk the cart path the entire way. There is a 2-3 foot wide rock-lined path adjacent to the cement cart path. However, not the entire way.

The Official Route is best I could figure based on park data and posts on HAZ. Thanks to Dave for getting a prototype route out years ago.

Water Sources
Bring all the water you need. Three water fountains along the course/trail. Obviously not public property.

Two Out-n-Back options with parking, water and restrooms.

Synopsis
Guessing this is an old Phoenix Preserves easement. There is no way an organization with a goal to create extraordinary guest and member experiences want hikers walking their course. Odd and cool all in one. An unforgettable experience.
