B LENGTH: 7.4-11.4 mi (with add on) ELEV GAIN: 200 ft PACE: Medium

Since it's getting hot, please contact one of the hike leaders for meet-up time, but it will be very early!

We will meet at the Granite Mt Trailhead in the McDowell Sonoran Preserve at 31042 No. 136th St., Scottsdale, just north of Dynamite Road. City of Scottsdale - Trailheads.

This gorgeous hike has very little elevation gain and perfect for a warm morning; no long, uphill grind. With stunning mountain views to the east and great rock formations along the hike and the best cactus display around, this trail just slides by. This is an in and out hike, but if it's not too hot that morning, and we all agree to go on, we can make this a lollipop hike. The add-on miles (close to an additional 4) lead us through the new Black Diamond bike trails on the South and North Diablo Trails. These are easy for hikers, but you can see why they warn those on bikes.

So if you're in town this summer and want to get in an early morning hike with fabulous scenery, come on and join us! Good bragging rights....

We will make this a safe and fun hike: Please bring plenty of water, electrolytes, salty snacks and don't forget to wear a hat. No water or toilets at the trailhead. Please, no children or dogs on this hike.

Cost to non-members is $5.00
