Overview

Complete loop through Estrella Mountain Park, highlighting some of the favorite sections.

Description

Rainbow Valley is a great trail. There are some steep climbs as you head south towards Toothaker. I would not recommend Homestead, it is all sandy wash area.

Only took Homestead because Pedersen Trail south of Gadsden looked boring. However, once you get on Pedersen Trail again from Homestead and heading north, it is quite a treat.

Butterfield is a blast with some tech climbs.
