Starting at the small parking area off North Power Rd, it's a gradual but steady climb for most of the way heading east to Usery Pass Road. The trail winds back and forth, with great views of Red Mountain and the surrounding range. The benefit of the long climb is, it's all down hill on the way back!

Access Info

       Nice trail for a short workout. Not steep so could be ridden fast. Just like all the local Phoenix area trails make sure to bring enough water when its hot.

       Going out and back, starting on the west, this is pretty fun. Not too hard to get up, and you can really get some speed coming down!
