Trail shared by B. Miner

Steady, packed, but sandy singletrack which turns into a decent rocky climb.

Description

Desert Park Trail runs from the McDowell Sonoran Preserve north and loops back providing access to Gateway Loop Trail, Windgate Pass Trail and Tom's Thumb Trail. The west portion of the trail (runs N/S) is cruisey, mellow and hard-packed. The eastern portion (runs W/E) begins sandy and packed, then turns into a steady, rockier climb.

This trail is a fun return route to the parking lot from the neighboring Gateway Loop Trail. As with many trails in the vicinity, it has a potential for wildlife sightings.

Very rocky. Hard to get a flow. Most of the trail is in a wash. Not really a trail as no trail building other than mile markers is evident. 5.4mi — 0h 49m
