Short but Sweet
by DixieFlyer

remove free decal offer
This short spur trail leads to Peak 3098, aka West View Overlook.

This spur trail to Peak 3098 runs off of the Western Loop Trail in the Fountain Hills McDowell Mountain Preserve. While this spur trail is short and sweet, the climb up to the trail on the Western Loop Trail is steep and will give almost anyone a good workout.

Interesting Factoid
Peak 3098 is located near the east end of a ridgeline that goes up to Peak 3804, which is in the Scottsdale McDowell Sonoran Preserve. The highpoint of the town of Fountain Hills is along this ridgeline at the boundary line of the Fountain Hills and Scottsdale preserves, likely at an elevation of around 3,180 feet.

    To Adero Canyon Trailhead
    From Loop 101 and Shea Blvd head east on Shea Blvd for 7.8 miles. Then turn left on N Palisades Blvd and continue 1.1 miles. Turn left at the stop sign onto Eagle Ridge Drive and continue 2.4 miles until you reach the Adero Canyon Trailhead. Note that along the way Eagle Ridge Drive first becomes N 143rd Way and then becomes N Eagle Ridge Drive.

    • February 2019: There is road construction on Eagle Ridge Dr, and the last mile to the trailhead is on a well-graded, unpaved road. However, that section of the road will ultimately be paved.
