Meet at 7:00 am (start 7:05) at the GRANITE MOUNTAIN TRAILHEAD, located in Scottsdale on 136th Street, 2 miles north of Dynamite/Rio Verde Road.

We’ll explore the very northeast section of the McDowell Sonoran Preserve on today’s hike, heading north from the Granite Mountain Trailhead on the 136th Street Express Trail to the Hawknest Trail, then returning on the High Desert, Renegade, Desperado, Coyote, Granite Mountain Loop and Bootlegger Trails. Along the way, we’ll see some very interesting desert flora, including an impressive crested saguaro.

Cost to non-members is $5.00
