This is a nice little hike in North Phoenix. Scarlett Canyon I believe is part of the Union Hills Mountains. Is is a easy hike to follow as the mountain itself is rather small. It is about a 3 mile loop. There are no trail makers at all.


The entrance to the trailhead is on the eastside of the mountain. The eastside of the mountain was the most enjoyable to me. In the afternoon you will be in the shade with lots of big bushes as well as large boulders.

I always start heading north and go around the mountain. On the north side you will run into an old mine that is fenced off. I believe this to be the Union Mine.

Once you reach the westside you will see houses along the trail. You will also see where the mountain was graded for gravel I think. Which also means less plant life, but from this side you can see another trail leading up to the top of the mountain. And on a clear day the views are breathtaking.

Leave No Trace and +Add a Triplog after your hike to support this local community.
