Trail shared by Hunter R

An easy loop around the golf course through scenic Sonoran desert

Features -none-

Family Friendly Kids will enjoy the scenic, yet easy nature of this trail.

Description

Starting from the West Park Parking Lot of Papago Park, hike counterclockwise, keeping the golf course on your left. You'll start out on a paved path, but turn left after the golf course parking lot roughly a mile in and you'll be on dirt soon enough. Have fun meandering through the desert foliage, which is pleasantly less spiky (by Arizona standards) and a little more lush than most of Papago Park.
