    I've been waiting for a cool day to do an in and out on the National from the Pima Canyon trailhead. Today was overcast for all but a couple hours, which was perfect. Stopped by Goat Hill on the way west, a must for me. Once I reached the west end of the National, I hiked up the Alta trail to Maricopa Peak and then came back the same way. Excellent hike. The National is really a nice trail except for the last couple miles on the west end. Not too many people out and about considering it is a holiday.

    To Pima Canyon Trailhead
    This one is a little tough to locate if you're not from the area. It's near Guadalupe Rd. The issue at hand is there are no on-off ramps for Guadalupe Rd. Instead get off south a mile on Elliot and follow 48th Street north.

    Pima Canyon Trailhead is located west off of 48th Street just south of Guadalupe Road. It's all rather confusing. Your first time just go to the intersection of Guadalupe & 48th then head south. Take the first right and an immediate left into South Mountain/Phx Preserves Park. Follow the access road passing the golf course all the way to the trailhead.

    Pima Canyon Trailhead and Marco de Niza Trailhead are one and the same now. Long ago the road continued to Pima Canyon Trailhead.
