Nature Trail #304 Hike
Hike: Phoenix Mountain Preserve Nature Trail #304
Conditions: Very hot - even in the shadow of the mountains. 18:00-19:00
Distance: 1.5 miles
Difficulty: Easy to Moderate
Thoughts: Trails everywhere in this park. Not as well marked as they could be. Many birds (flying as well as ground birds) and lots of small lizards present. Park offers some impressive views. A warm up hike on my arrival day in Phoenix. This peak is not far from my Hilton. Found that the dry desert heat is still hot! Hydration is extremely important.
