The Marcus Landslide trail was just opened in 2012 and is part of the McDowell Sonoran Conservancy. It's a nice scenic walk that will take us close to some interesting rock formations among other views. East End is just above us with Four Peaks off to the east.

The trailhead is located between the main parking lot and the rest rooms.

The third parking lot next to the rest rooms is closest to the trailhead.

    Can I bring my dog?

    "Dogs on leashes are welcome in the Preserve. Take dog waste-removal bags with you; they are provided at most trailheads. "

    I took the above statement from the McDowell Sonoran Conservancy website. So dogs are fine just follow the rules.
