Belated post. Did a quick after work jog at Thunderbird. Did a counterclockwise loop involving Ridgeline and Sunrise Trails. Only saw two hikers while out. No wildlife.

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!

Couldn't get out of town this weekend so I hit up Thunderbird Conservation Park. Parked at Pinnacle Peak and then took Coach Whip to Ridgeline, to Sunrise then headed up the second mountain via Cholla Loop and back to the parking area.

Always a nice little hike but always busy. Even getting out before the sun was up there were people like myself out with flashlights. Lots of dogs as well.

This was not on my radar, but a long day at work and a limited window steared me to the Thunderbird Trails. Started from the 75th Ave lot. Took the Ridgeline over to the Sunset Trail, hit the peak and then looped around the east to connect to the Coachwhip which I took west back to the TH. Unenevtful hike. Just glad to get out for a quick one. Parking and trails didn't seem busy, at first, but probably saw close to 20 people while I was out there. Temps were in the low 90's....very comfortable.

Short after work jog. Wanted to get a loop in involving the Ridgeline. Started from the 67th Ave. parking lot. I took the Coach Whip to Ridgeline H-4b to Sunrise H-4 (where I hit the peak going CCW) and then continued on the Sunrise to the amphitheater where I took the road over to the Desert Iguana which I took back to my car. Sounds like a lot but I didn't even hit 3 miles. This officially completes this area :) . Not a huge fan of these trails but their convenience means I'll be back.
