When I was a Westie, these were some of my go to workout trails. I dropped my GS off at daycare and thought I'd hit these up since I was in the area. The trails remain the same with new trail names and signage. Peoria does a good job on their park trails.

Westwing Mountain Trails hold up. Still interesting and challenging with interesting geology. South views take in the vast valley city views. North views, mainly wide open, with encroachment starting. The first time I hiked with @joebartels, was here May 04 2010, almost 13 years ago. Since these we have hiked together some 423 hikes over the years.

Next on to Eastwing Mountain. This one is shorter, but is still a decent workout. Got finished just as the rain was starting.

I saw a first for me on the way home. I was on Deer Valley Road, just east of 35th Ave. There was a police cruiser 100 yds in front of me that just pulled over and turned on his lights. In the 55 degree temps, windy conditions and a light rain, the cops jumped out to cuff a totally naked guy. I'm sure drugs were not involved.
