Hike Mojave Connector Trail #202

    Rate this Adventure 1.1 miles 165 ft gain  - Out-and-Back Trail

    Added by Nick Tort

    Although this trail is technically just a connector path between the Mojave Trail #200 and Quartz Ridge 8. A, it packs enough punch to serve as the reason you head out today!

    The best starting point to access this hike is parking at the Mojave Picnic Area and heading up the Mojave Trail #200. At .4 miles, you will hit the junction and stating point for the Mojave Connector Trail. Head left at the saddle and begin a rapid ascent up switchbacks to a small flattened summit area.

    The beauty of this hike is the different viewpoints you are awarded with around each bend. When you start, most of your sights will be of Piestewa Peak and downtown Phoenix, but as you make your way around some corners and up the ridgeline, the views open up to the East - where you will see Papago Park and Camelback Mountain and the famous Echo Canyon Hike.

    This trail can be used to create a killer loop between the Mojave Trail #200 and Quartz Ridge 8A.

    As a note, this hike is sometimes referred to as Mohave instead of Mojave.
