Running from paved Shea Road to Swansea Road, this easy connector provides the best route from Parker across the Cactus Plain to the Swansea ghost town. There are also very nice campsites on the west and central parts of the trail with views of Swansea and Planet Peaks to the north. The well-maintained trail crosses several sandy washes and briefly follows a powerline. The trail also crosses the Central Arizona Project aqueduct, transporting Colorado River water to central Arizona communities.
