Trail shared by Gregory Thompson

A trail drudging through a sandy wash.

Features -none-

NEED TO KNOW: $6 to access San Tan Mountain Regional Park from main entrance, or $2 ride in or parking on the North entrance.

Description

Arguably the most scenic trail as you are next to the Malpais foothills. There are parts that are not in a wash that are on par for the trails in this area. You probably won't see anyone, one of the lowest traffic areas of the park.
