Overview: This is one of several trails in the northern area of the Phoenix Sonoran Preserve. It circles the summit of the hill climbed on the Ridgeback Trail and provides 360 degree views of the surrounding area. It is well worth the detour if you are hiking the Ridgeback Trail.


Hike: This trail is reached from the Ridgeback Trail at mileposts .60 and .55 (N33 46.459 W112 03.315 and N33 46.442 W112 03.276 respectively). If beginning at milepost .60 the trail climbs a short distance to the top of the ridge then south to the highest point. Then it makes a sharp left and returns along the east side of the hill to the junction with the Ridgeback Trail.
