After work jog. Went clockwise in Iguana and then Coachwhip. Saw a few hikers on Coachwhip. Wildlife - quail and lizards. Perfect weather.

1st trip
first time hiking here
hit most of the trails, i think
enjoyed the high points on cholla loop, arrowhead point and the h4 loop
backtracked to hit sunrise and get double digits
lots of people out - families, dogs, audible music, people carrying dogs and kids
a little busy for me, but to be expected on such a nice weekend day
have wanted some new trails and thought it was definitely worth a visit
home in time to watch second half of Creighton vs. Marquette
big win for the blue jays!

Sunrise hike on Sunrise trail - took a loop around the 67th Ave side of the park - a little backtracking back down Chuckwalla as opposed to Ridgeline to catch Coachwhip, but I wanted to catch a little extra mileage and still have a clean loop. Lots of dogs per usual

My wife and friend wanted to get a last stretch out before her flight so we went over to T-Bird to stretch our legs. A light walk surrounded by creosote and a few blooming cacti - Di was thrilled to see a Christmas cactus along Desert Iguana. Busy day at the park with lots of pets (2 and 4 legged ones☺)

Short after work jog. Counter clockwise loop involving Iguana and Coach Whip. Weather was great! Almost chilly :) . Parking was limited, but I didn't see many people on the trails as I was on. No wildlife.

Discovered a great quick nearby loop, gonna be hitting this much more often. Starts out with the Desert Iguana, cut over to Sunrise, and finished on Chuckwalla. (Going to need to upload a good route/description as it's not in here yet.) It is short, so I ran it once, and then reversed for the second loop. Gonna mix it up in the next few.

Busy with this gorgeous spring weather and would make a fun mtb, if there were 100 less people out there. ;)

Quick evening hike in Hedgpeth Hills from parking B: Desert Iguana - Coach Whip - Ridgeline - Sunrise to the top and then down to amphitheater - Coach Whip - Cholla - connector to parking. One lightning strike nearby and a few drops of rain.

Quick jog around the hills between 67th and 75th Ave incorporating the Iguana and Coach Whip trails. Went counterclockwise from the 75th ave side. No wildlife but encountered a biker and a couple of hikers.

I really like this park, and today I wanted to complete the "Desert Iguana" trail or "H5" as part of my hike. It's the only trail besides "flatlander" that I haven't touched. I parked on 67th Ave and took Chuck Walla over to Sunrise Trail and headed to that summit. Then I descended down Ridgeline and took the H1/Coach Whip Trail left back to the parking lots off of 59th Ave. I walked throughout the middle of the park and up close to the trailhead for the Cholla Loop. My son's scout troop built a new connecting trail from that trailhead to some picnic tables and the Desert Iguana trail a few weekends ago. I wanted to check the trail out since I moved quite a few of those rocks when we were there! It looked good! Then, I hiked Desert Iguana back towards my car. It's a flat pretty dull hike but about halfway down the trail off to your right beyond the property fence is someone's lot with several antique cars in varying conditions. They were interesting to look at anyway! Sure wish they would mark all these trails with the trail names. I noticed they painted the trailhead posts recently because a few used to be darker brown and now they are a light beige. Maybe signage is coming down the road.
