    Hiking in the desert is never easy, but the scenery is beautiful. This trail is no exception. It gives great vistas from many spots and has all that desert culture to keep you occupied. You will need two things for this hike. First, lots of water, I can never stress that enough. You will also want to bring you camera.

    Seriously difficult trail involving bouldering and strenuous hiking. Worthwhile if you're up to it, with beautiful views of the city all around from the top. However, if you're not an experienced hiker, or have heart problems, just do another nearby trail.
