C LENGTH: 4-5 mi ELEV GAIN: 460 ft PACE: Slow

Meet at 10:00 am (depart at 10:25) at the Holiday Inn parking lot (east side) of Country Club and US 60 in Mesa. The trail starts out flat and then at the junction with the Treasure Loop Trail, the elevation gain starts. There are benches along this part of the trail in case one feels the need to rest. Our destination is the Green Boulder and the end of almost all the elevation gain. At that point we return via the same trail. For those that would like a little more, there is the option to take the Prospector Trail back to the parking area. Call leader to verify that the hike has not been cancelled. There is no sign up, just show up. Children - okay. Note: last year we had snow on this trail. If we have it again I'm going. Be prepared to take pictures. Cost to non-members is $5. Guests and new members should contact the hike leader prior to the hike.
