Ascent Trip Report

Parked at the brand-new Adero Trailhead, just opened Dec 2018, my first time at this trailhead. Route follows Andrews-Kinsey Trail to the Sunrise Trail. Excellent trails, lenient grades, some drops along the way.

This is my new favorite way to Sunrise Peak. The route is hemmed in by lovely ridges with lots of saguaro so you feel like you're in the wilderness, even though Scottsdale is just a mile or two away.
