Ascent Trip Report

From Desert Vista Trailhead in the Phoenix Sonoran Preserve, took the marked trails in a clockwise direction. About 10 minutes out from the Trailhead on the Hawk's Nest Trail, on the left side of the fenced-off area, the Great Horned Owl was still in her nest in the Saguaro (arrived 1-27-20!), and for the first time this year we were able to see one of the owlets!
My Gaia GPS app said it was 5.75 miles, 2 hours 17 minutes out and back, about 800 feet vertical elevation gain.
