We parked near the NE corner of the McDowell Preserve just over the boundary into the Tonto NF. We took a couple of old trails west for a mile+ and then turned south and intersected Hawknest trail from there we made a loop in the preserve.

TNF trail :next: Hawknest :next: The Divide :next: Branding Iron :next: Granite Mtn loop :next: Coyote Canyon :next: Soapberry Wash :next: Dove Valley :next: Barb’s :next: 136th St Express :next: TNF.

The views of the mountains to the east were very nice ;)

Saw quite a few mtn bikers especially as we got further south, 3 equestrians, 1 hiker and 1 steward (Bob).
Didn’t see anyone in the first 2 miles or the last 3 miles..
