“Hike an old road with vistas over to the Four Peaks and the Superstitions. Makes part of a couple of good loops.”— Heather Dunphy
NOTE: As of April 29, 2019, the Adero Trailhead has been closed until October 2019 for additional road construction.
This trail is on a former dirt road, so it is very well graded and good for walking side by side with your best friends. Lots of wildflowers in season.
This trail forms one leg of a good loop with the Western Loop Trail. It also is a good access to the Sonoran Trail, which now is a loop including the upper and lower Sonoran Trail. There are frequent markers on these trails as well that are indexed to the map, available at the trailhead.
