Baseline Trail Professional Review and Guide
"An easy day hike in the Sonoran Desert foothills on the north end of the Sierra Estrella, this loop trail makes a good introduction to the trail system in Estrella Mountain Regional Park. It is less crowded than the better-known trails in the city and is also an ideal trail for beginning hikers and even nonhikers. Start on the signed Gila Trail, a barrier-free interpretive loop. Stay left and follow the Gila Trail clockwise to a ramada. Turn left here onto the Baseline Trail, which gradually climbs southwest up the left side of a ravine to another junction. Stay left here—the right fork will be the return from the Baseline Trail loop portion of the hike. Climbing gradually, the Baseline Trail continues over a saddle, then contours around the south slopes of the peak."
