       So what the heck happened to the parking at the trailhead at the top of the hill on Bush Highway?? I guess SRP decided to Scrooge everyone out of the parking which had been enjoyed by all for years when the fenced off the entire parking area. Where is everyone else parking now?

       Cardiac is blue. Don’t listen to this negativity.

       Agree with Heylers, Blue going down Black going up. I do recommend going up, that is North to South. This allows you to take Saddle down and Saguaro down, both of which are way more fun down than Hawes trail. If you want to see a video of a good loop including cardiac hill and all the sweet downs check out my YouTube channel www.youtube.com/channel/UCJQzuGTgnZGCp6Na9Ft3l2w

       Agree with Heylers as well. I love taking this trail into the park as it is a fun downhill with some punchy uphill sections and some great rock gardens to crawl over. Coming back up is a black and will test your leg stamina at the end of your ride.

       Finally a real mountain bike trail. The rocks have been cleared, berms are somewhat dug, lots of switchbacks and some really fun sections. I am tired of biking on hiking trails. The technical climbing was the funnest part but it kicked my butt. After about 6 little 20 foot climbs I was spent. I parked on the West end of this Hawes out and back trail. Coming from the 202 there was like 6 parking spaces on the left about a 1/2 mile before the trail on Powers Rd.
