This week's Sunday Afternoon Stroll is in the McDowell Sonoran Preserve. Late afternoon hikes are great for responsible people who get chores done in the morning, or wild partyers who like to stay up until 4:00 AM. Plus, you get to see great sunset views toward the end of the hike!
I am hiking the Desert Park and Gateway Loop trails, along with a couple of connecting trails.
Distance: 5.5 miles
Elevation Gain: 500 feet
Meet me at 3:00 PM at the Gateway Access Area, and we'll hike from there. Probably get food after the hike. Dogs are welcome. Restrooms available at the trailhead.
