Spent the afternoon checking out this park and trails. Easy trails and very peaceful, a short drive from Scotsdale.

Very nice trails for hiking, biking, and horse riding. We hiked the 5 mile Go John trail, which was very scenic, great hiking paths, and well marked. This is a wonderful park on the north side of Phoenix!

We paid the voluntary one dollar to get in, and hiked an easy trail. I wish we were prepared with more water and could have gone further in, because it looked awesome. Next time.
