Short after work jog. Clockwise loop.....H-4a to Sunrise (hit the peak) then down on the Ridgeline and back to the TH via Coachwhip. The trails in this park are easy to follow, but not well signed, especially as layed out by HAZ. I have found that the best way to follow these trails (until you get to know them), is to download the track, or at least study the route and predetermine how the trail interacts with the rest. There is no signage for H-4a and the Coachwhip is only signed at a few spots. Still, easy trail system to get to. Some elevation options and there are some options with loop sizes. Nice day with high clouds. Moderate number of people on the trail. No wildlife.

Late day at work led to a fall back hike at Thunderbird Park. Did a CCW loop involving H-4A - Sunrise - Ridgeline H-4b - Coachwhip - Sunrise - Chuckwalla H-5a. Little warm, but felt good to get this quick jog in.

After work jog. Did a loop with the soul purpose of incorporating this segment into a loop. The lots were full and the trails were busy! Over 20 cars at the 75th Ave lot. Drove through this lot to the parking on the north side and started my hike from there. Did a loop going CCW. I looped around to this segment, which is very unimpressive. (I would much prefer the Chuckwalla H-5a). I then did the short climb up Sunrise. Took the Ridgeline H-4a over to the Coachwhip and then swung over to the Iguana to get back to the car. Nice jog...no knee aggravation.
