- Papago Park: Big Butte Loop Trail This trail is a level path, not putting too much strain and exertion on the knee joint. The beautiful rocks surrounding the trail will capture your senses and is the perfect trail for someone who wants to feel as if they’re in the midst of the desert, without having to travel too far.
- Usery Mountain: Merkle Memorial Trail This trail is perfect for the nature lover. As you wind your way through a relatively flat area, you can take in the beautiful views all around you. This trail features a small hill, challenging someone who is ready to push themselves a little bit, testing the newfound strength after OsteoArthritis knee treatment.
- McDowell Sonoran Preserve: Jane Rau Trail This half-mile loop was named after one of our very own OsteoArthritis of the Knee Program patients, Jane Rau. The tenacity of Jane led the preserve to give her a trail emblazoned with her name. Weaving through boulders and crossing bridges, hikers love this trail for the scenery and ease with which they can finish this hike. It’s a perfect stepping stone for OsteoArthritis patients who are ready to get back to hiking!
