Likely In-Season!
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.

    WARNING! Hiking and outdoor related sports can be dangerous. Be responsible and prepare for the trip. Study the area you are entering and plan accordingly. Dress for the current and unexpected weather changes. Take plenty of water. Never go alone. Make an itinerary with your plan(s), route(s), destination(s) and expected return time. Give your itinerary to trusted family and/or friends.

    From the 101 turn north and about a mile you will make a left turn on Rose Garden. Follow it to the dead end there is a small parking lot at the trail head.
