Meet at 7:15 am (depart at 7:30) at Wendy's in Fountain Hills on Shea Blvd. just west of Highway 87 (Beeline Hwy).

Join us for this popular hike to Horton Creek.  We will do the loop hike, hiking up the Derrick and Highline trails to Horton Spring and then returning to the trailhead on the Horton Creek Trail.  With the rainfall this winter, the spring should be gushing.  We will spend more time exploring the creek, spring and waterfalls along the way. Have your camera ready as we take in the beautiful scenery. We will not rush down the hill unless it is raining or hailing!

Bring sunscreen, plenty of water, lunch, snacks, camera and $ for carpool.  No dogs or children please.  

Cost to non-members is $5.
