Quartz Trailhead: Quartz Trail Loop
Phoenix - Scottsdale - Mesa
Unlike most trails in the McDowell Sonoran Preserve, the Quartz Trail leads visitors through stretches of protected Sonoraon desert located within the residential neighborhoods on the western edge of the park. Even with houses visible, the beauty of the Sonoran landscapes eclipses any feeling of being in-town.
