The missing link
Irregular Link Trail #1C is a 0.55 mile one way hike with 370 feet elevation gain. Located 3 miles east-northeast of Phoenix Arizona. The trailhead is car accessible. February and November are the best months to enjoy this hike.
Overview: This is a nice little connector trail between the 1A loop. It can be used with the VOAZ Trail #1B or the Perl Charles Trail #1A for for a moderate loop via the Apache Trailhead. Think of it as an extended Nature Trail Loop.
It could also be used to shorten a 1A loop though you'd miss out on the best part of that loop. I'm sure it's a popular option to get into the mountains via the Dreamy Draw Trailhead too. However I'd recommend the Apache Trailhead for better views and to avoid that noisy freeway.
