A quick hike to the Tower on asphalt road and back to Desert Hills Trailhead is 1.3 miles and takes about 30 to 45 minutes of your time. You could extend your hike by following Sidewinder Trail and complete the loop around the tower. It takes about an hour and half and you could cover about 3 miles. It is very easy and relaxing hike and it doesn’t require you to spend a lot of time behind your wheels since it is located within the city.

Happy Trails!
