wanted some elevation, but also to hike the andrews - kinsey trail
started from 145th street trailhead since i've never actually parked there, and sunrise trail from that side is shorter, steeper and far more scenic than from the west
up to the peak, then ten feet past the horse railing, took a right on andrews - kinsey
very nice trail cut into the side of the mountain, following the contours and going around two big drainages
good footing so one can look around at the superstitions, weaver's needle, four peaks, and the fountain hills fountain
lots of vegetation and a decent flower show, with brittlebush, globemallow, hedgehog blossoms, and some little yellow ones
the only thing i didn't much care for was the arbitrary end of the trail at the fountain hills preserve boundary
a trail continued, and without time constraints i would have gone farther
as it was, i had hiked the entire trail and went about 50 feet further to a nice overlook
went back the same way without sunrise peak
i don't mind an out-and-back, but next time i would look at some loop options on satellite view
fun to do something new, along with a peak and a good workout
started around 9:30 and finished just after noon
saw quite a few people going up to and on sunrise, no one on andrews - kinsey, and maybe four on the way back down
