An exploratory hike to determine its suitability for our larger social hiking group.
This is a fun loop with narrow trails and lots of up and down over a pretty ridge line. After hiking the entire length, the trail follows the elevation along the side to return us to the start point.
Mileage: 3.5 miles
Trails: Narrow but maintained hiking trail, moderate-difficult
Elevation Gain: 458'
but lots more total elevation change
Leashed dogs OK
To get there: From loop 101 west, exit 75th Avenue and go right (north) to Deer Valley road. Go left (west) to 83rd avenue. Go right (north) and continue past Happy Valley, past Jomax, past the 1st High Desert Dr to the 2nd High Desert Drive; yes, there are two. Go right and take the first left on Higuera.
