On our way home from Zion and Bryce Canyons we decided to check out a Flagstaff area hike. The owner of the B&B suggested that we hike Red Mountain.

A stroll would probably be a better definition. The hike was very easy and although there was 400 feet of AEG it was spread over 1.25 miles. I only got 8 minutes of heart pumping on this hike and I suspect that this was elevation related at that.

The hike is very well marked and starts off on a sandy trail through a pinon grove. It was very quiet and the 40 degree temperatures made for beautiful skies and fresh clear air.

About 2/3rds of the way up the trail, you step down into a sandy wash for the rest of the journey. As you approach the amphitheater of hoodoos and volcanic red rock you must first climb a step ladder that was built to accommodate a rise in the trail of about 8 feet. After this climb you are in a most beautiful and serene place.

The rocks are the most beautiful red, yellow, brown and black. It is volcanic and thus very porous with large pine trees adding to the drama.

This would make a beautiful hike for a beginner or perhaps someone who is not able to expend much energy for the reward at the end of the hike. We also had snow capped long range views of the San Francisco Peaks that were 31 miles away.

We did the Go John counter-clockwise this time. Made for a completely different hike with different views.

Hiked the Go John again today. There were a few new flowers that I am not acquainted with and some orange headed bugs all over the place.

I uploaded a few pictures. If you would like to help identify the flowers and bugs, I would appreciate your help.

Brought friends from Michigan to the Superstitions to hike. There was just a trickle of water running. Pools were looking a bit green and stagnant.

Wow! North Mountain Park was a VERY busy place today. Lots and lots of people climbing Piestewa Peak. We were very happy when we reached the saddle and dropped over the back side of the mountain away from the crowds.

It has been a while since we hiked this trail. I had forgotten how beautiful it is. It also offers you lots of heart pumping as you essentially go up and down the mountain twice.

There was very little color and/or green left in this trail. A few Hedgehogs blooming but that was about it.

This morning we were back in the McDowell mountains trekking the Lost Dog. We hiked out to the Taliesin Overlook, then came back via the Old Jeep and Ringtail trails. It made for a nice loop.

The Lost Dog section of the trail was very easy hiking in, out and around the wash. Very little cardio effort required. Once we hit the Old Jeep Trail, thankfully, it was a little bit more challenging. Just a bit however.

We when hike I like to make sure that I get at least 1 hour with my heart beating between 122 and 140. This trail only offered me 52 minutes of that in a reasonable walking speed.

Certainly, one might say, that I could just pick up the pace, but then my joints start to give me a LOT of grief. Therefore, we tend to prefer trails that have more elevation challenge than this one.

This is certainly a nice trail for a beginner or perhaps to bring your out of town guests to. It offers some nice views without too much effort.

Made another of many trips around the Overton Trail today. I was taken back by how dry the floor of the desert has gotten in just the past few days. All of the green carpet of grasses are completely brown! The massive crops of brittle bush are clearly on their way out with the lower sections of their leaves turning brownish in color.

Other that a few poppies in a few areas, it was as though someone changed the television set to black and white. The magnificent colors are, for the most part, gone. The only predominant color left is the brittle bush and they don't have much life left in them.

On the other hand, I suppose it won't be too much longer and the saguaro and other succulents will take their turn to shine with all their glory.

I made some changes to the miles and AEG, for this particular hike, because we did not do the whole loop.

We started out on the Horseshoe Trail, then connected with the Gateway Loop Trail and then finally with the Windgate Pass Trail completing our hike at Inspiration Point. The hike started out at an elevation of 1688 and we reached 2714 at Inspiration Point.

We got to the trail head at 9:00 but soon realized that my wife had left her pack at home. So...back in the truck we went and got back to the trail head around 10:00 or so.

The trail was fairly busy with hikers and also a fair number of mountain bikes. The trek to Inspiration Point is predominantly an uphill climb the whole way to Inspiration Point. However, there is nothing too steep. I think the park's "intermediate" rating for this trail is fair.

We immediately noticed that the flora were clearly past their prime and nowheres near as pronounced as it was on our visit just a short while back. We also noticed that some of the cactus are starting to bloom. Another thing of note is that the private jets flying into Scottsdale airport are constantly buzzing overhead. It wasn't too obnoxious, but clearly a constant presence on the hike.

This was a very enjoyable hike and one that we would highly recommend. Some wine and cheese would have been nice at Inspiration Point. A lovely place! :)

Today we hiked the Go John trail for the umpteenth time. The weather was perfect and the flowers are just a shade past prime. I certainly haven't been on every trail in the valley but I can attest that, of the ones I have been on, the Cave Creek Regional Park has the most outstanding collection of wild flowers. The brittle bush, poppies, lupine, chicory and many more are in wild abundance.

Get out here before you miss this wild display!!!!

My wife also saw our first snake today. I didn't see it so I have no idea what she saw. She just said it was red and before I could get there, it was long gone. My pool guy seems to think it was something called a red racer because of its quick get away. :-k

This morning we drove out into the Superstitions to hike the Lost Goldmine Trail. We took two cars and stopped first at the parking lot on the western end of the trail to leave a car. By the time we got to the eastern end of the trail we already has two hours invested. I didn't plan on that.

We started our hike around 10:00 with my daughter-in-law and her dog Steve. The first section of this trail was incredibly lush and loaded with, I swear, every conceivable type of flora found in the sonoran desert. It was like we were hiking through a botanical garden. It was absolutely incredible! If you plan to hike just a part of this trail, by all means, make it from the eastern trail head. The other amazing feature was that we were right at the foot of the mountain which served us an amazing granite backdrop. Truly remarkable.

After a mile and a half or so, we began to slowly climb up a bit in elevation and we began to loose the rich collection of flora but were rewarded with a plethora of Saguaro. I don't recall ever seeing such a vast amount of Saguaro in one spot. Some of them were monstrous and clearly witnesses of the wild wild west of times past.

The wonder of this trail is that the whole trip you are skirting along the base of this tremendous granite mountain.

As we continued climbing we entered a micro climate that would serve us for the rest of the trek. With the predominately southern exposure the landscape was more arid and loaded with brittle bush blazing their bright yellow colors across the valleys.

I was surprised that we didn't really encounter many people on this trail. Most, it seemed, opted to hike the neighboring Peralta Trail. That parking lot was jam packed and into the over flow lots.

This was a very delightful jaunt and I would highly recommend that you put this on your short list of hikes if you don't want to miss the color show!

Today we found ourselves playing on the Tortuga Trail in the Spur Cross Ranch Conservation Area.

At the top of the mesa, the grass was so thick you could barely see the trail!

Today we hiked the Gateway Loop Trail(4.4 miles) via the Horseshoe Trail(.7 miles).

We started our hike from the parking lot of the Village Health Club in DC Ranch. In the southwest corner of the parking is the easily recognizable sign for the beginning of the trail. The city of Scottsdale has received permission for hikers to use this lot until the new trail head is built.

The Horseshoe section of the trail is very easy hiking with a slow incline towards the Gateway Loop Trail. A sign greets you to the Gateway loop which we decided to trek in a clockwise direction.

Once we hit the Gateway the incline steepened but never really became what I would call steep as we worked our way up towards the Gateway saddle.

As we trekked along Tom's Thumb popped into view for a bit and the noise of the city, thankfully, started to dissipate.

On the trail we encountered around 8 different hikers and surprisingly about 5 trail stewards along the way.

Most of the elevation change occurs as you hike around the west, north and ceases as you begin in a southernly direction at the saddle. Conversely, most of the decline occurs in the east section of the trail. By the time you reach the south side of the trail, you have dropped nearly back to your beginning elevation. We were thankful that we went in a clockwise direction to get the most aerobic benefit from the hike.

The trail was also ablaze in color. We saw brittlebush, poppies, lupine, scorpion weed, blue dick and many other species that were not in our vocabulary.

This was one of the most consistently flowered trails we have encountered. The upper elevations featured lupine concentrations that made your eyes smile with glee.

All in all this is a wonderful, close in trail. The only negative we found was the noise of the city on the beginning of the trail.

Today we had time for a short hike so we trekked around the Overton Trail in the Cave Creek Regional Park.

We did the trail in a clockwise motion and about 1/2 mile into the trail we found an explosion of yellow bittlebrush. While admiring the splendor and shooting a few photograph we heard this "sound" approaching that sounded like a small airplane or something. We quickly learned that this freight train approaching was a HUGE swarm of bees. We haven't experienced this before so it was a little alarming.

After we turned a corner and started heading north, the bittlebrush subsided and we found ourselves in a sea of purple (I don't know what these purple flowers are) intermixed with loads of chicory. It was beautiful.

As we continued our journey and hit the top of the ridge, we started heading east and found our section of the Go John Trail ablaze in poppies.

This was a marvelous little hike with tons of natural grandeur.

We hiked this beautiful trail again with our step-daughter and her dog Steve. Perfect day for a hike and a most wonderful trail!

Lots of poppies still approaching from the east. As we gained elevation we noticed that the Lupine are becoming the dominant flower along with a few other flowers of purple and blue. There were also significantly more white chickory flowers as well.

Some of the spots were spectacular to see.

This was our first hike on the Siphon Draw Trail #53. What a beautiful little hike this is. First of all the trail approaching the Flat Iron was completely loaded with poppies. I uploaded a photograph to show you.

Once you cross from the state park land to the Tonto National Forest the trail turns to ankle twisters for most of the trek up the mountain. This was a Saturday morning and the trail was also VERY busy.

We hiked up to the waterfall, which, according to my map is 2.2 miles. The waterfall was but a trickle but the view back down the mountain was incredible with a perfect breeze to cool you down from the journey up.

The area around the falls is slick rock, which was a first for us to see so much of this. It was a little intimidating at first until we realized that our hiking boots stuck like glue on the rock.

A wonderful hike that I would highly recommend.

Today we hiked the Sunrise Trail in the McDowell Mountain Preserve. We started out at the trail head at the end of Via Linda. There is a nice parking area with overflow across the street.

The trail starts out in a residential area and immediately your first step will be elevation gain until you go up nearly 1,000 feet. During the first leg of the hike we found the trail to be somewhat busy with many of the "hikers" seemingly nearby residents. I presumed this because of their gym wear outfits and cell phones.

Once you make it to the first "look out" the traffic clears out substantially. To reach this point you have hiked a little over a mile and climbed from 1923' to 2460'. This section of the trail presented a great deal of Poppies, seemingly strategically places Saguaro, and a nice collection of Barrel Cactus. As you near the top of this particular section, you are also walking amidst wonderful large granite boulders. Very scenic! The trail, by the way, is also in very good condition with a few area of slippery scree on the trail. Bring good boots.

From the first look out you continue your accent until you reach the east peak spur which is at 2852" and presents wonderful views east to Fountain Hills (we were able to see the fountain shooting up in the distance) and looking west you can see Camelback Mountain as well as the skyscrapers of downtown Phoenix. A remarkable view!

From here, if you like, you can take the Peak Spur to the summit at 3069'.

Once you cross the top, and continue your journey westward, the landscape changes dramatically. There is significantly less granite and the views open up to long range vistas as you trek along the top of the ridge.

From this point on you are beginning a very slow decent until you ultimately reach the Lost Dog Trail head completely your 5.5 mile journey.

I loved this trail and will be back many times I am sure.

Our first hike on this trail in the McDowell Mountain Preserve. This is a very easy hike with very little AEG. The gain that is there presents itself with very gradual slope. The only raise to your heartbeat will likely be a few ravines to climb in and out of.

This would make for a beautiful Sunday stroll for beginning hikers. Lot of barrel cactus. Very few flowers.

The trail is technically 2.26 miles long. Rather than turn around and hike back, we made a loop by connecting to the Lost Dog trail. This made the total distance somewhere around three miles.

This morning we hiked a portion of the Spur Cross Tail. Unbelievably beautiful hiking today. We hiked the Go John trail the other day and it was full of poppies. We were thinking that Spur Cross might be even more populated with flowers, but that was not the case.

We didn't run into poppies until we hiked around 3 miles in the direction of the Go John Trail.
