It's a brutal hike-a-bike, but it's worth it. Climbing Gila is easier and descending Bursera is more fun, so use this connector for the best of both worlds. Climb up Gila, use this connector to get up to Bursera and descend...then climb back up the other side of Gila to the connector, then hike back up to Bursera and descend the other direction, making a nice little figure 8.

Access Info

Park in the lot at 19th Ave/Chandler Blvd. Take Pyramid Trail to Gila.
