B LENGTH: 12.1 mi ELEV. GAIN: 650 ft PACE: Fast

Meet at 7:00 am (start 7:05) at the BROWN’S RANCH TRAILHEAD, located at 31301 N. Alma School Parkway, about a mile and a half north of Dynamite Road (go to for further directions). 

This will be a true exercise hike, moderately long and fast-paced along the smooth and flat Powerline Road #2 and Powerline Road #1 Trails in the McDowell Sonoran Preserve.  We’ll start off from Brown’s Ranch heading eastward along the Latigo Trail, then proceed north to Powerline Road #2 on the 118th Street Trail.  At the convergence of the two powerline trails, we’ll make a brief stop to check out the new MSP trailhead located at the corner of Pima and Dynamite Roads.
