Meet at 7:30 am (depart at 7:45) at Wendy’s on Shea Blvd. (east of Saguaro Blvd.) in Fountain Hills.

Join us for this in-and-out hike on the newly re-groomed AZ Trail section starting at Bushnell Tanks Trailhead. There are two stream crossings (hopefully it will be dry by then)... so be prepared for some rock hopping and possible wet feet. Otherwise, the improved portion of the trail is nearly wide enough for an ATV. This section of the AZ Trail undulates a bit. Come prepare for a spectacular show of wildflowers (the eternal quest). Bring sunscreen, hat, boots, water, lunch, and snacks. Hike will be canceled in case of rain. Cost to non-members is $5.
