Meet at 7:45 am (depart at 8:00) at the NE corner of the Fry’s Electronics parking lot (2300 W. Baseline Road, Tempe) west of I-10 on Baseline Road.

We’ll carpool to the Pima Canyon TH and hike the Marcos de Niza Trail, then cutting over to the Ridgeline Trail for the return trip. The Marcos de Niza Trail has several rock formations that a hiker needs to be careful of while climbing down. Expect around 3 to 3.5 hours, which will include time for a snack or lunch.

Bring water and sunscreen. Cost to non-members is $5. Guests and new members should contact the hike leader prior to the hike.
