Meet at 8:15 am (depart at 8:30) behind the McDonald’s on the Carefree Highway, just east of I-17. We will join Ranger Mark for an adventure as we explore the Clay Mine! Once inside, he'll discuss the history of this mine. Learn how its contents were used to "cure what ailed ya"! The park will supply the hard hats. You bring water & a flashlight. We will park at the Nature Center parking lot and follow the signs to the mine. We will continue on around the Overton Trail back to the parking lot. There is a $6 per vehicle park entry fee (free with Maricopa County Parks Pass.) Bring plenty of water and snacks for the hike. $5 fee for non-members.
