Ascent Trip Report

This is a local park in Phoenix. Took the short Echo Canyon trail which is more of a heavily eroded trail/wash mix with a fair amount of steppy type class 2 stuff. But no real challenges or anything. Mobbed by folks on a fine December desert day. Good views. Probably won't repeat this one because the footing and all that is a bit tedious.
