Did a figure 8, combining the Stewart Mountain Dam-Petroglyph and Goldfield Ovens Loops, starting from Water Users on the Salt River.

The petroglyphs loop around Stewart Mountain Dam is underrated. I really enjoyed this loop. A nice combination of ancient art in the petroglyphs with views of modern architecture in the dam and the two massive culverts under Bush Highway.

As for the Goldfield Ovens Loop, I enjoyed the views of both Fountain Hills and Saguaro Lake from the high point on the north east side of the loop, and I enjoyed checking out the Lime kiln, but otherwise, it was a lot of slogging through sandy washes.

Other than the short stretch along the Salt River near the Blue Point picnic area, the solitude factor is great on this one.
