Meet at 7:00 am (depart 7:15) at Wendy’s on Shea Blvd, just west of Hwy 87 in Fountain Hills.

This is an in-and-out hike on a short but challenging trail following Christopher Creek for 2 miles. The trail passes through a ponderosa pine forest and the creek is lined with mint, ferns and grasses. The final ascent climbs steeply for 1.5 miles to the Mogollon Rim. Wear sturdy hiking boots and sunscreen. Hiking sticks are recommended. Bring snacks, lunch, electrolytes and plenty of water.

Please, no children or dogs. Cost to non-members is $5.
