Loop hike with the Javelina and Ridgeline trails from the Beverly Canyon Trailhead in South Mountain park in Phoenix, Arizona.

There are a couple ways to access this area of South Mountain park. The description of this hike is from the Beverly Canyon trailhead, but you can also park at the Pima trailhead and access the loop from there as well. From the parking area of the Beverly Canyon trail, take the signed Javelina trail (on the West side of the parking area). This trail is easy to follow as it heads along the Northern edge of the park. After 1.7 miles of gradual elevation gain, turn left on the signed junction with the Ridgeline trail. This aptly named trail stays on a ridgeline, allowing for views of the park, as well as views of the Phoenix area. This 1.6 miles section of trail ends at the Beverly Canyon trail. At this junction, turn left and walk the quick 0.1 miles back to the trailhead.
