A little slice of life
This hike is accessed on the northern loop of the Perl Charles Trail #1A or the northeastern loop of the Piestewa Circumference Trail #302.
From the north you gain a little elevation in this ridge buster shortcut. Soon you are treated to eye inspiring rock formations rising above you in shear brilliance. At two hundred feet elevation gain you won't break much of a sweat. There's a couple areas that are delightfully lush. Well, comparatively to the rest of the preserves in my opinion. The eastern views are decent too.
This makes for good loops with the Irregular Link Trail #1C or the Perl Charles Trail #1A. You might incorporate twice into a figure eight since it's the highlight of the hike!
