Description

Start from the East Trailhead at the AZ Heritage Center (N College Ave & E Weber Dr) parking lot (there's an access point near the SW area of parking lot). Continue SW a bit and then you start an incline that turns NW (it's a pretty long incline so be prepared to shift those gears).

At the end of incline (about 0.5 miles), the trail turns SE for a nice and fun descent that leads you to E Curry Rd where there's a tunnel under the road.

From the tunnel, head south of Curry Rd and continue a bit until you get to an open area that gives you access to multiple trails, for the Lizard Trail stay to your left.

The next 0.5 miles or so has a gradual incline that is very rocky (large rock surfaces with some loose rock, not necessarily gravel). This is an area where your balancing is tested (intermediate difficulty for sure).

From here, it's some more gradual incline to the end of trail with nice views of Tempe Town Lake and the ASU football stadium.

You can go back on Lizard Trail or hop on the Cactus Trail that will lead you back to the tunnel south of E Curry Rd and the East Trailhead.
