Meet at 7:30 am (depart at 7:45) at Wendy's on Shea Blvd. in Fountain Hills, just west of the Beeline Highway (Highway 87).

The trailhead is off the Beeline Highway, seven miles north of the road to Four Peaks. We'll start on the Pine Creek Loop Trail and then take the Ballantine Trail past a corral to Boulder Flats, where the landscape is dotted with large boulders. We’re bound to see many beautiful flowers on this hike as well as an abundance of healthy saguaros.

Weather conditions will dictate whether we can hike.

Bring sunscreen, hat, boots, adequate water, snacks, and light lunch.

Cost to non-members is $5. Only guests and new members need to contact the hike leader prior to the hike.
