Meet at 6:30 am (depart 6:45) at the CVS Pharmacy on the NW corner of Brown & Ellsworth Rds in Mesa (exit off the 202 Freeway and drive east on Brown Rd.). We will carpool to the First Water TH and drop most of the cars. From there we will pack as many people into as few cars as possible. We will drive to the Peralta TH and then hike to First Water.

We will hike up to Freemont Saddle, descent on West Boulder trail, pass Bull pass, and return via the Dutchman trail to the First Water TH.

Bring good boots, water for your needs, sunscreen, hat, hiking sticks if you use them, snacks and lunch. Electrolytes, please pack them. Flashlight also a good idea. Dinner after hike is optional.

Email hike leader for reservations as there is a 15 hiker limit. Cost to non-members is $5. Guests and new members should contact the hike leader prior to the hike.
