An easily accessible walk around a prominent hill in the Sonoran Desert, this trail provides a 360-degree view of the northern suburbs of Phoenix. Though you’re still near those suburbs, it doesn’t feel like it, and you can easily imagine the time, not so long ago, when this was all open desert. Keep an eye out for coyotes. You might also spot typical desert birds such as roadrunners or Gila woodpeckers. For those who want a little longer hike, a spur trail leads to the top of Lookout Mountain. surface: Dirt and rocks
