Meet at 6:30 am (depart 6:45) at the CVS Pharmacy on the NW corner of Brown & Ellsworth Roads in Mesa (exit off the 202 Freeway and drive east on Brown Road). I can also meet you at the trailhead if you pay $6 or have a County parks pass, but email me for trailhead parking directions.  

We'll hike on the Vista, Blevins, Cats Peak Pass, Cats Peak and the Pass Mountain Trails.  This is an enjoyable desert hike with great views from the top of two small mountains.  Most of the hike is on smooth and wide trails with the two mountain areas having the usual rocky conditions.  Try it... you'll like it.  Hiking time will be around 2 hours, allowing for a few breaks.

Bring hat, water and sunscreen. Please check the website or email the leader in case the hike is canceled due to rain.

Cost to non-members is $5. Only guests, new members or hikers that plan to meet at the trailhead need to contact the hike leader prior to the event.
