My first time at the Sonoran Preserve. Short trip starting at the Hawk's Nest trail. Did the Dixie Mountain Loop, going up the Dixie Summit along the way. Went on a Friday morning so I didn't see more than 3 other people in the park. Had the Dixie summit all to myself. :) Pretty steep, but short, climb on the Dixie summit. Some modest ups and downs along the Dixie Mountain Loop kept it interesting.

Thought about doing the Western Vista summit on the way back, but I was starting to get blisters from not wearing the right socks so decided to call it a day. All the trails in the park are well-marked, and the park's map makes it easy to plan a nice loop. This park is only a few minutes farther from my house than Piestewa, so I'll probably start driving the extra few mins to avoid the huge crowds at Piestewa.
