Every rose has a thorn
by Unregistered & HAZ_Hikebot

Peak 2075 Circumference is a nice little hike in North Phoenix, within the Union Hills USGS 7.5 minute map quadrangle. It is an easy hike to follow as the mountain itself is relatively small. It is about a 3-mile loop. There are no trail markers or official trails. The managing agency seems to have forfeited this once respectable swath of Sonoran desert to rampant use-trails.

The entrance to the trailhead is on the east side of the mountain. The east side of the mountain was the most enjoyable for me. In the afternoon, you will be in the shade with lots of big bushes as well as large boulders. Start heading north and go around the mountain. On the north side, you will run into an old mine that is fenced off. This appears to be the Union Mine.

Once you reach the west side, you will see houses along the trail. You will also see where the mountain was graded, perhaps for gravel. This means less plant life. You can see another path leading up to the top of the mountain. On a clear day, the views are breathtaking.

Albeit trashed by humankind, the sunrises, sunsets, and spring are enjoyable.
