Meet at 7:00 am (depart at 7:15) behind Denny’s, just west of I-17 on the south side of Bell Rd.

We’ll hike the Broken Arrow Trial first (4 RT miles and only 300 feet EG). It’s a scenic in and out hike to Devil’s Dining Room (sinkhole), Submarine Rock, and Chicken Point where we’ll see panoramic red rock views.

Then we'll drive to the nearby Cathedral Rock Trail (1.5 RT miles and 650 feet EG). This trail provides an exciting but difficult climb to a saddle from which there are excellent views.

If the group is interested, we'll eat before driving home. If you have them, bring your Red Rock Pass or a Senior National Parks Pass. Bring plenty of water, sunscreen, hat, boots, and snack or light lunch. Cost to non-members is $5.
