Meet at 7:00 am (start 7:05) at the GATEWAY TRAILHEAD (18333 North Thompson Peak Road – go to for further directions). 

This very popular hike includes a counterclockwise loop along the Gateway, Bell and Windgate Pass Trails.  The climb to Bell Pass (Elev. 3,204 ft) is invigorating and the scenery throughout the hike is great.  On the way back, we’ll take a short diversion along the Horseshoe Trail back to the trailhead. 

Cost to non-members is $5.
