B+ LENGTH: 12-13 mi ELEV GAIN: 2000 ft PACE: Fast

Meet at 6:30 am (depart at 6:45) at the Park & Ride, SW corner of Bell Rd & I-17.

We'll carpool to the trailhead at Mingus Mountain and start at Mescal Springs near Jerome. There will be great views of the Verde Valley at trail's end. We may see hang gliders up close and personal at their launch site on top. We'll plan to make a partial loop of Trails 105, 105A and 106. Bring lunch, at least three liters of water, electrolytes, sturdy hiking boots, and rain gear. This is a pretty fast-paced group, at least 2 mph average including uphill. No dogs or children, please. Bring $ for carpool. Cost to non-members is $5.
