Overview

This trail is a great day trip away from Phoenix. As the trail rises gently up and away from Queen Valley and into the desert landscape, it opens up scenic vistas over the neighboring valleys. Traveling during the late winter and spring rains is a beautiful experience to see as the desert bloom and open up its colors. There are vast expanses of clover fields which attract the buzzing bees as well.
