Decided to try out the northern part of the Sonoran Preserve today. Did a counter-clockwise loop through the first part of the Sidewinder Trail, up to the Apache Vista, down the Ridgeback Trail to the Ridgeback Overlook, then the Ocotillo Trail back to the trailhead.

There were lots of people in the park today, but the crowd really thinned out once we passed Apache Vista. Once we were on the Ridgeback Trail, we saw almost no one. Bit of a hazy day out, but the view from the Ridgeback Overlook was probably the best I've experienced in either side of the Preserve so far.

Another nice day at the Sonoran Preserve. Next time I'm here I'll have to go further down the Sidewinder Trail and make a longer loop out of it.
