Margies Cove Trail Hike Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Both the South and North Maricopa Mountains are within wilderness areas. Separated only by a railroad corridor, both are encompassed within the Sonoran Desert National Monument.

This hike takes you across Sonoran Desert plains into a scenic canyon in the North Maricopa Mountains. You’ll see man-made attractions on this hike too, such as relics from the prospecting and ranching days."

One that does is the Margies Cove Trail, which penetrates the northern third of the monument." Read more
