Busy trails with big groups and practically NO one wearing a mask. NOT even those 65+ who are most vulnerable.

We didn't do the whole loop, as we ran out of time, but a super beautiful hike! I highly recommend it, and it wasn't too hard. Rocky in areas, but to be expected.

We hiked the Gateway Loop Trail that is almost 5 miles long. This is a nice, intermediate trail. the trail is very rocky and dusty. Elevation change is not too bad, and there are only parts of the trail that become strenuous. It is about 25 mins from Old Town Scottsdale
