Join the ranger for an easy hike learning about the desert on the Cottonwood Trail.

PRE-REGISTRATION REQUIRED, Only 10 people per hike, Call 602-506-9557. Here is a fun short easy hike to go look at the desert with the ranger. This hike is on a rolling trail not heavily traveled, so it is a good trail to see wildlife.  The hike is 2 miles and will be around 1.5 hours. Restrooms and water available at trailhead.  Meet at the Cottonwood Trailhead, accessed through the North Park Entrance. Wear good hiking shoes and bring your water bottle.
