Meet at 6:15 am (depart 6:30) at the Park-and-Ride at the southwest corner of I-17 and Bell Road. We'll carpool to Mingus Mountain, which is just south of Jerome.

Our lollipop-shaped hike will encompass trail numbers 547, 550, 548, and then back to 547. We'll be hiking through alligator junipers and maple trees that should be changing color, if our timing is right. About half way through the hike, we'll stop for a quick snack before heading back to our cars. After our hike, you have the option of walking around Jerome, eating at one of Jerome's great restaurants, or heading back to the valley.

Bring water and snacks for the trail. Cost to non-members is $5.
