Ruth Hamilton Trail is pet-friendly. This popular trail is just over 3 miles in length and intersects the Quartz Ridge Trail. There is a nice observation bench at the intersection. The western section of this trail offers a number of switchbacks and is moderately rocky. Once the hiker reaches the peak, the trail descends and levels out. Although short, it is moderately popular and offers tremendous views of the downtown corridor and the northern Sonoran mountains. Wildflowers are abundant during the spring.
