Visit our NEW resource: Maricopa Trail Elevation Profile Graph of Trail between Major Trailheads/Junctions. Click on any trail segment to get its elevation profile. Segments are between major trailheads and/or junctions. The graphs for the outer loop of the Maricopa and Sun Circle Trails follow a clockwise direction; the Sun Circle Trail heads west from Scottsdale.
