Mesquite District Update for March 7, 2013
The trail head for Sunrise and Westwing Mountain is at the Westwing Neighborhood Park, 27100 N. Westwing Parkway. Services at this site include: off-street parking, restroom facilities, and chilled drinking fountains from 6:00 a.m. to dusk.
Please CLICK HERE for the parking map.
There is also more convenient access to Sunrise Mountain trail at the Westwing Elementary School 26716 N. High Desert Dr., however there are no comfort facilities at this location. The school cannot guarantee parking spaces will be available, especially during the normal hours of operation. You will have greater success finding space to park on weekends, holidays, and during the summer months when school is not in session.
Trail users should not be accessing the Westwing and Sunrise Mountain Trails by parking in the adjacent neighborhoods. When this is done, trail users are often trespassing privately owned land. Please be courteous to the neighboring residents and use the approved parking at the neighborhood park or school parking lot.
The trail head for East Wing Mountain is at Sonoran Mountain Ranch Park, 7098 W. Miner Trail; Peoria, AZ 85383 and it is located three miles north of Happy Valley Rd. on 67th Avenue. The trailhead amenities also include off-street parking, restroom facilities, and chilled drinking fountains from 6:00 a.m. to dusk.
We appreciate you, our trail users, that sustain our viable Sonora Desert environment by not walking off designated trails, picking up after yourself, and respecting other’s private property.
