I was finally able to get out and explore this local-ish hike. It was interesting, but it wasn't what I hoped for. This is partly because with the low elevation nature of the hike, I won't be doing it in July, and partly because it is Scottsdale, and well, enough said. Also, there were a surprising number of people pretty far out there.

The desert here is very nice, lush, really. The views from the overlook and other areas are great, and it is a pretty nice hike in a scenic appearing range. The trail is just too gentle for my taste, though. Upper Siphon Draw, Camel-hand-bag Mountain from Echo Canyon, Piestewa and maybe some other hills are still likely to be my in town go to hikes, more so when over 100.
