I've hiked over many of the trails in the Phoenix area.
It does but I cope. After all, I do live in the middle of an uninhabitable desert ( but, it's a hot heat).
Long-time beginner hiker ( yes, one of my many contradictions). If stretched, I could even go 2.5 hours!
My apologies for missing the hike; my westside Phoenix friend assured me there was only one 7Ave entrance/parking area and as such we never met up with the hike. We saw you on the upper trail though on our way back -- we hiked it by ourselves after no one showed up ( again, totally our fault for being at the wrong 7th Ave trailhead!) I hope everyone else had a great hike.
