"A scenic loop takes hikers around Dixie Mountain, and a detour along Dixie Summit Trail affords a bird’s-eye view from the top. North Phoenix residents have ample opportunities to explore trails within Phoenix Sonoran Preserve, the newest addition to the City of Phoenix’s nature preserve system. From the marked Desert Vista Trailhead, hike north along Hawk’s Nest Trail, a wide, packed-dirt path. Cross a dry wash about 500 feet into your hike as the trail begins to leave the housing development behind. The desert holds many surprises for the observant hiker." Read more
