Adero Canyon trailhead is in Fountain Hills. Directions:  From Scottsdale, go east on Shea Blvd past the turn-off for Eagle Mountain Golf Club. Then, turn north on Palisades Blvd at the next stoplight. Turn left onto Eagle Ridge Drive at the four-way stop signs.

The Sonoran Trail is easy to moderate hiking. The first part of the route is along an old road that’s an easy walk for anyone. This is about 1-1/2 miles total out & back with a bit of elevation change and is an easy option by itself. The Sonoran Loop is about 4 miles round trip with an elevation change of about 700 feet. There are two connector trails to shorten the hike, if desired.
