This hike wanders across Sonoran desert plains and into a scenic canyon in the North Maricopa Mountains Wilderness. The North Maricopa Mountains are a jumble of long ridges and isolated peaks separated by extensive saguaro-studded bajadas and wide desert washes. Cholla, ocotillo, prickly pear, palo verde, ironwood, and Mexican jumping bean complement the thick stands of saguaro to form classic Sonoran desert vistas. Commonly seen wildlife includes desert mule deer, javelina, desert bighorn sheep, coyote, desert tortoise, and numerous varieties of lizards and birds.
