Loop the many easier trails on the west side of Kinney Rd. Fast and fun, albeit a little sandy when crossing washes.Park at the turnaround at the end of the Ironwood Picnic Area or any of the parking pullouts off of Kinney Rd.

We only did the South Western section of this trail. It has signs out there, but we used GPS. Good flowy sections with plenty of space (not too narrow for beginners) and overall quite fun! Very pretty views where you can see Kitt Peak in the background.
