The City of Scottsdale and the local AMC members have spent the time to make sure there is trail signage in this area. Although there are a number of faint trails to Sven 1 ... please try and use the trail that leads to 3 and work your way back to 2 instead of blazing up the side of the mountain.

@Linda - Its about a 15 min walk to the saddle - 5 minutes to the base of Sven 3
and another 5 minutes back up the hill and over to two and one...
