The location of our monthly General Membership meeting is the Marriott Suites in Old Town Scottsdale. The Marriott is located immediately east of Scottsdale Road at 7325 East Third Avenue, just one block north of Indian School Road. Join Dan Gruber who will share some very interesting opportunities for hiking close to home in the McDowell Sonoran Preserve. Learn about how the 65 miles of trails in the southern section will be connected with the 100 miles of trails in the north section next year. 165 miles in our backyard…WOW. See the Marcus Landslide, the second largest landslide in Arizona history. View one of the largest exposed quartz veins in the state on a short but brutal side trail. Still got some energy left … then continue on the Quartz Trail to a wash canyon that gets deeper and narrower the further you go. This preserve is right in our backyard. Come prepared to ask Dan any questions you may have about these magnificent hiking opportunities and the nonprofit organization that ensures access to them.
