San Tan Mountain Regional Park; Queen Creek, January 6, 2018 GPS Map

I can see San Tan Mountain out the window, but had never been to the park. What I didn’t know is they were having trail races today, with crowds, noise, and very little parking.

Trails in San Tan Mountain Regional Park are wide, well worn, and well marked. I met hundreds of joggers while hiking, and plenty of hikers and bicycle riders.
