Maricopa Trail Usery Mountain Segment

Some sights from a recent trek of the Maricopa Trail Usery Mountain Segment.
This scenic passage runs between Usery Pass Road and Bush Highway just south of the Salt River Recreation Area. It's a wonderful way to experience this beautiful swath of Sonoran Desert---without the crowds!

RATING: easy
LENGTH: 7.5 miles one way 
ELEVATION:  1320' - 1880'
GETTING THERE:
From US 60 in Mesa, take the Ellsworth Road exit 192 and go 9 miles north (Ellsworth turns into Usery Pass Road) to the Wild Horse trailhead on the left. The trailhead is marked by a Maricopa Trail sign and a no-shooting post. There’s space for about 6 vehicles in the dirt turnout parking area.
