Meet at 7:30 am (start hiking  at 7:45) at the 40th Street Trailhead of the Phoenix Mountain Preserve, located one mile south of Shea Boulevard at the end of 40th Street.  

Join us for this hike on trails where Ned spent countless hours.  The trails pass through scenic Sonoran landscape in the middle of Phoenix, but with no signs of the City to detract from the views.  We’ll head out southward from the trailhead toward Piestawa Peak on the Yates Trail (#8), then complete a moderately paced, clockwise loop on Trail #304, the Perl Charles Trail (#1A), and the Charles Christensen Trail (#100).  

Bring plenty of water, snacks, and wear sturdy hiking boots.  

There will be no guest fee for this hike, so feel free to bring friends as we remember Ned in his “backyard.”
