Family Friendly Flat trail and short loop.

Description

This hidden gem of Saguaro National Park (west) has a trailhead access point that can be found at the end of N Iron Ridge Dr. off Continental Reserve Loop. This trail is a perfect loop for anyone learning to get comfortable on trails, or anyone looking for the best possible vantage points of Safford Peak. With a shorter distance, and some mild elevation gain, this is a great introductory trail.
