MEET at Quartz Trailhead, 10215 E. McDowell Mt. Ranch Road, 8:00 AM
The trail follows a wash through a development for about 2 miles before entering the actual preserve. Once past the path leading up to the quartz outcropping the trail continues around the quartz mountain into the McDowells. Great views of Thompson Peak, pure serenity, and thick vegetation are a welcome relief. Trail follows a large open wash that twists and turns near the end. The trail ends at a rock waterfall that's about 10 feet high. The Taliesin overlook can be included to add more feet to the elevation change. We will find someplace nearby for refreshments after the hike.
