Biking the Sunrise Trail in Scottsdale, Arizona

I found some trails about 5 miles from my house.  They have nice elevation changes so they should give me a decent workout.  I haven’t been on the bike since my Park City trip in early August so I need to get back in shape.

I parked at the Lost Dog Wash Trailhead to get to the Sunrise trail from the west.  Here is a link to a map of the trail. I brought my Garmin to map the trail.  I wanted to get to the peak which is a 1,100 foot gain and about 2.5 miles.  As you can see from the Google Earth map I didn’t make it.  The finger points to the peak.

I was so close, only about 1/2 mile.  But it was 92 degrees outside and I didn’t want to push it.

This picture below shows the switchbacks leading up to the crest that I stopped at.  It was 1.8 miles from the trailhead to this point.  It took me 47 minutes and many many rests to make it there.

This picture is looking back down at my turnaround point.  I was ready for a nice long downhill.
