Meet at 8:30 am (depart at 8:45) at at the Burger King, just south of US 60 at the NE corner of Power Rd. and Superstition Springs Blvd. OR email Jim for directions to the Dome Mountain Trailhead.

This section of the Goldfield Mountains contains colorful rock formations, rugged peaks, and interesting boulders and cliffs. We'll hike past a huge boulder that we'll give an unofficial name of Pumpkin Rock. The Great Pumpkin or The Face are names that I've read that other hikers have used. From the Blue Ridge area, we'll have a scenic 360 degree view of the area, including the Superstitions. Most of the hike will be on a trail or an old road.

Hiking poles might help out on one section of the trail. Bring plenty of water, sunscreen, and a snack.

Non-members - $5 fee and non-members must call the hike leader before the hike.
