City Councilman Sal DiCiccio, who had pressed for the improvements, will be joined by other Phoenix officials at a formal grand opening of the trailhead at 8 a.m. Saturday.

Instead of hiking up the half-mile road, Yohe and others can park in the newly reconfigured parking lot and have the option of visiting two new ramadas or using one of the six new flush toilets, which replace two stinky pit toilets.

Crews also have been working on the trails in the area – which were never technically closed – to eliminate confusing spider trails created by hikers taking short cuts that damage the brittle environment.

The $2 million in renovations were well overdue, with aging facilities built during the 1980s falling apart under the strain of large crowds and overuse, said Mike Francis, Phoenix parks supervisor.
