The trail map above is an updated version of an old one formerly posted at some trails. Presumably this map was  prepared by Del Webb showing trail names chosen by the development team. The old map signs have now been replaced by new map signs with no trail names. On this site the original names will be used in the absence of newer “official” names.

The  trails are listed below in west-to-east order from Gavilan Peak Pkwy to Daisy Mountain Dr, and the descriptions run from south to north:

Between Gavilan and Memorial it connects to 3-JUBILATION/Acadia Park and to Morse Ct east of the wash. Between Memorial and Whitman there are no connections. Inside Anthem Community Park it connects to Anthem Community Center, to softball fields,  and to the amphitheater, parking lot, play structure, Daisy Mountain Railroad, etc.

SAGUARO TRAIL – this unpaved natural trail begins at King Dr and runs north along the wash east of Patriot Way and National Tr, crosses Memorial Dr, and continues up the wash east of Freedom Way until ending at the Palo Verde Path complex.
