Contact the leader for meetup details and to make sure this hike is right for you.

We'll start from the trail parking lot at S. 19th Ave and W. Chandler Blvd. in Awatukee. From there, we'll do a counter clockwise loop, starting northeast up the Pyramid Trail to the National Trail, then west. There are expansive views in all directions from the National Trail, lush desert enroute and several mines. We will then connect with the Bursera Trail, and hike east to complete the loop.

This will be pretty much an all-day hike. Bring lunch, lots of water, snacks. Wear sturdy boots and layers. Well behaved, leashed dogs known to be capable of this strenuous a hike are welcome.

Cost to non-members is $5.
