Well this wasn't the hike I had planned but it worked. I had planned on going to Apache Wash Trailhead but there was a truck and trail laying on its side blocking the turn off. People will never surprise me as a police officer was waving for people to stop. I stop and I was in the fast lane yet three more people went through while to officer was trying to get them to stop for a fire truck.

Anyway that changed my plan so I drove up to the Carefree Hiway and headed to the new trailhead on 7th Ave. It's named the Desert Hills Trailhead and it's like no other I have ever seen before.
Now there is no water there which didn't surprise me. But what did is there is a table and chairs plus a bar without chairs and a big fan that you can turn on to cool you off. Not only that this is the first trailhead that I have been on that has a roundabout.
When I left it was dark so I had to be careful as the parking lot is big and if you go the wrong direction you could easily run over spike in the roundabout entrance.
Other than that it was a nice little hike not to busy and very enjoyable.
