Trail shared by Rebekah Wilhelm

A short climb with beautiful views of the Phoenix Sonoran Desert Preserve.

Description

This short extension is a must for visitors seeking sweeping views. From the Great Horned Owl Trail, climb to the summit of Union Peak, which is one of the most southern peaks in the park. The trail will side-wind back and forth a few times before reaching the top, but the effort is worthwhile.
