Meet at 7:30 am (depart at 7:45) at the Granite Mountain Trailhead in the McDowell Sonoran Preserve at 31042 N. 136th St. Scottsdale, just north of Dynamite Road - City of Scottsdale - Trailheads. 

We did this hike last June on a hot, sunny morning and we had a good turn-out and a great time and want to do this again in cooler temps. This gorgeous hike has stunning mountain views to the east and great rock formations along the hike and the best cactus display around; this trail just slides by. It is a lollipop hike through the Black Diamond bike trails on the North and South Diablo trails. These are easy for hikers but you can see why they warn those on bikes.

Bring plenty of water, snacks, hat, etc.  No water or toilets at trailhead.
