Description

This is a 13.1 miles route good to hike or run. The trail 100 alone from end to end is almost 11 miles but I wanted to make this route as long as a 1/2 marathon, so this route deviates to take the trail 70 a mile northeast and turn around to get back to the trail 100. Description from www.phoenix.gov: Length: 10.7 miles Elevation: 2,080 ft. - 1,290 ft. Multi-use trail Difficulty: Easy to moderate The trailhead is located at the north of Mountain View Park at Seventh Avenue and Cheryl Drive.

This is a 13.1 miles route good to hike or run. The trail 100 alone from end to end is almost 11 miles but I wanted to make this route as long as a 1/2 marathon, so this route deviates to take the trail 70 a mile northeast and turn around to get back to the trail 100. Description from www.phoenix.gov: Length: 10.7 miles Elevation: 2,080 ft. - 1,290 ft. Multi-use trail Difficulty: Easy to moderate The trailhead is located at the north of Mountain View Park at Seventh Avenue and Cheryl Drive. A dedication plaque, benches, paved parking, drinking fountain and restrooms are available. The Christiansen Trail is a multi-use trail that traverses the Phoenix Mountains Preserve west to east and serves as the major artery for the trail system in the Phoenix Mountains. The trail passes through tunnels at Seventh Street, Cave Creek Road and Northern Avenue avoiding any conflict with vehicular traffic. The Christiansen Trail passes just north of the parking lot at Dreamy Draw Recreation Area, which serves as an excellent access to the trail and into the heart of the Phoenix Mountains Preserve. Paved parking, a staging area with hitching racks, horse trough, drinking fountain and restrooms are available at Dreamy Draw. The Christiansen Trail continues east toward Piestewa Peak and intersects the Perl Charles and Quartz Ridge Trails. The trail ends at Tatum Boulevard, across from Tomahawk Drive where there is limited parking. A popular access point is at 40th Street south of Shea Boulevard where ample parking for cars and horse trailers is available.
