Meet at 10:00 am at the Water Users parking lot (east lot) on the Bush Highway. The west lot is where Salt River tubers are bussed, just below the Stewart Mountain Dam. Turn into this lot and make an immediate left to reach the meeting place. Email me if you need a photo drawing of the Water Users area. Display a Tonto pass or a National Park senior pass on your vehicle.

This is a scenic lasso hike on unnamed trails and sandy washes. Views from the highest hill include Saguaro Lake, Four Peaks, the McDowells, the Superstitions and the surrounding Goldfields. Trail conditions range from sandy to sometimes rocky trails. Hiking time will be around 2.5 hours.

Bring water and sunscreen. Hiking sticks would be helpful. Cost to non-members is $5. Only guests and new members need to contact the hike leader prior to the hike.
