1st trip
Nowhere on any map of mine do I see a name for this trail or the Peak 2429 listed by HAZ. I just knew I wanted to get some elevation and have seen this trail up to a high ridge from the west side of Phx Mtns Rec Area NE of Piestewa. Started from the 40th St TH and headed due S on an univiting jeep trail loaded with loose rock. My feet stumbled a lot. It wasn't my fault. At .91 mi I came to a jct with a spur trail that hooks around to the left and, night fast coming, I thought I could take it N to the Christiansen and back to the parking lot. That, rather than go high. A woman ahead of me who was walking a leashed dog told me this spur ended at a boulderfield around the bend. I asked her if she knew the name of any of the trails and she said, "I've been hiking out here for 11 years, and I've never heard a name." As it turned out the spur ended 1/10 of a mile from the 2429 jct. Huge boulders lay in front of me. It will take Caterpillar to dig a route farther N here. Saw several hikers coming down from the high ridge, but decided I didn't have time to do the main trail up and return. Another day. Did find a beautiful sunset with attractive shots in all directions.
