Description: Nested in the southwest portion of South Mountain, the Pyramid trail is still unknown to many who frequent the various trails of S. Mountain. The trail begins as an easy stroll just yards from residential area and after about 1 mile, our stroll turns to moderate hiking through a series of switchbacks and a saddle and then more switchbacks until it junctions with the National Trail. This will be a fitness hike--you will sweat! Who's in?
