Freehiking North of Phoenix

Sorry, we've been away from the computer for a few days - PJ and I took a frequently-nude sailboat trip to Santa Cruz Island off the California coast. (The trip report with photos is coming soon.) Here is a freehiking thought from Desertsax to get things started again:

“[I’ve freehiked] . . . at least twice a month for over a decade. . . We hike in 'State Trust Land' in the north part of Phoenix. . . Our 'secret place' is a 2600-acre island of lush desert, with the occasional hiker/ATV/mtn bike/equestrian. On 90% of the hikes we see nobody else the whole time. If we do, it's usually while they're far off, and we can step behind a bush, and perhaps slip on a long t-shirt as a cover up. There are hundreds of these places around the state, but this one is minutes from the house, and has convenient and safe parking. . . I usually hike with one or two friends.” - Desertsax
