Meet at 6:30 am (depart 6:45) on the south side of the Kohl's parking lot, one block south of the 202 San Tan Freeway at Arizona Ave.

This hike will follow the Green Mountain Trail, accessed by the Catalina Highway, to a side trail leading to Guthrie Mountain with a good trail all the way. I saw a cool coati on this hike last April. Interesting red rock formations on the summit with spectacular views. We may do an additional side hike to Maverick Spring (adding another 1.2 miles and 300', if we are so inclined).

Optional dinner stop at a great Mexican restaurant in Marana afterwards to cap off an all-day adventure. Wear hiking boots and bring plenty of water and snacks. Cost to non-members is $5.
