Having done the big loop last week, I was able to make a loop out of what was left, arriving at the Ridgeback Overlook at dawn. :)
The east end of this preserve has to be the quietest in north Phoenix, with almost no houses in sight the entire way. Both times I had the trailhead to myself before first light on a Saturday, coming back to 30+ cars - but it still had the feel of untouched desert. Every major Sonoran flora is on this little loop, so it would make a great intro for out-of-towners. For an easy hike close to home, this one's hard to beat.
