Buena Vista Phoenix

Buena Vista Phoenix

This morning we drove up South Mountain to the Buena Vista parking lot and hiked 1.75 miles to Hidden Valley and then returned on this relatively flat part of the trail.  Near the start of this part of the National Trail, as the name Buena Vista implies, there are some nice views of Phoenix.  On our way to Hidden Valley we passed a mountain biker straightening his tire after taking a fall negotiating steep jagged rocks.  At this same spot on our way out we observed another mountain biker literally brake his chain.  Mountain biking is not for the faint of heart.  Next Saturday South Mountain hosts the 15.5 mile National Trail Trek for pre-registered participants.
