I have avoided most of H1 for years, being the least challenging and least scenic of the Thunderbird Park trails. But I also noticed that there were no descriptions of many of the trails near my house, so I decided to fill in some blanks. This would be 1 of 2 hikes to gather info for a description I'll post later.
The southeastern end of H1 cannot be looped, so I just parked at the 51st Ave/Pinnacle Peak trailhead and hiked down to the 51st Ave/Potter trailhead, returning the way I came. On the plus side, much of the trail is shaded in the morning by the Hedgepeth Hills, and there is a sedimentation basin that has viewing blinds for the many birds that hang out there. On the down side, the southern half consists of looking down into people's backyards, complete with barking dogs.
I'll do the northwestern leg soon, and then add it up.
