It’s S Day – and I went on a 5.5 mile hike yesterday over Spillway and Signal Wash trails! Hopefully this means my motivation is back!
The thing about both of these trails is that you actually have to hike Blevins Trail to get to Spillway Trail, and then you can hike Spillway to Signal Wash trail. But to get back to your vehicle, you’ll have to hike about half a mile on Meridian Trail to get to Amigo Wash trail to get to Blevins Trail to get back to the parking lot! That’s how it goes from being a 1.7 mile hike to a 5.5 mile hike! :) It’s a pretty easy hike – the map lists them all as “easy”, and my seventy-two year mother was able to do it yesterday. But remember – watch out for snakes this time of year, and take LOTS OF WATER!!!
Happy Hiking! ;D
Yep, there’s my mother about half way through the hike!
Some lovely cacti – you can buy these in the grocery stores here, and actually eat the (with the cacti spines, of course!)
There are places where you want to watch your footing!
Phoenix, Arizona is the sixth largest city in the U.S. – but
you really get the sense of being out in the desert, with no around you
when hiking at Usery Mountain Regional Park!
