I'm an All Trails member in the McDowell Sonoran Preserve, which means I've hiked all 200 or so miles of trails. To keep up my membership I need to hike the trails that are added over time. This in one of those trails and it's now one of my favorites :y:. It's on the North side of Granite Mountain away from the crowds... from 10 AM to 12:30 I saw no other hikers and 4 mountain bikers. There are two short ridge line areas that give you an excellent vista view to the North and South. Interesting rock formations and flora. We have had reports of mountain lion sightings in this area once and a while so I found myself looking up at the top of rock formations.

I can't link all the trails now b/c they don't exist yet but will by Fall 2016. They were finished but not open yet when I hiked them.

Renegade is absolutely gorgeous. Little hill sharp turns - panoramic views.
