    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    Here is a description of the trail he was parked near. Website also has a map. I can't tell if there are any cliffs or anything along the trail.

    https://www.phoenix.gov/parks/trails...ptions-and-map

    Kiwanis Trail

    Driving Directions: Kiwanis Trailhead – Just past the Ranger Station, which is ½ mile down road from main gate, make a left turn at the dip in the road (Central Avenue entrance), then proceed straight through the next intersection and follow the road back to a paved parking area. The Kiwanis Trail is one of the more extensively used trails inside South Mountain Park. This trail is suitable for most levels of hikers and can be used as an introduction for those wanting to get acquainted with desert mountain hiking. This trail travels through a rock-studded canyon, which is home to a variety of Sonoran Desert plants and animals, and also reveals two rock wall dams built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930’s.* Although, not a very long trail, it does offer direct access to the National Trail and Telegraph Pass Trail ... once you reach the roadway at the trail’s end.

    Distance: 1.0 mile

    Difficulty: Moderate - steep towards the top end.

    Elevation Change: Approximately 480 feet.

    Body found in the area. Nothing confirming it was him though.

    Aw Nellie, I'm so sorry it ended this way :/

    What a perplexing situation - there is definitely missing information here. The trailhead appears to be pretty flat and at the bottom of the hills. I can think of plenty of reasons he would go there, but why leave the car running? Going to take a quick snap of the sunset and your dog is in the car? Drug-induced paranoia? If this is not suicide someone else must have been there for it to make sense otherwise.
