Meet at 7:45 am at the McDonalds on Carefree Highway and I-17 (leave at 8:00 am).

This is a loop hike just to the west of Lake Pleasant. It starts by going up Cottonwood Creek and loops through scenic Sonoran Desert. The hike offers views of large Saguaros and abundant wildlife, herds of wild burros are common to the area.

This trail does not get a lot of traffic but has great views and is close to Phoenix.
