Meet at 7:45 am (depart 8:00) at the 7th Street Visitor Center parking lot; about one mile south of Thunderbird Rd.

We will hike to Trail 306 from the Visitor Center, then follow it to our summit on Shaw Butte; returning by following a connector to Trail 100. This hike has great views of the western end of the Preserve, and passes the ruins of an old restaurant on Shaw Butte. The pace will be adjusted for the group and the temperature.

Bring plenty of water and sun-screen. No dogs or children. Cost to non-members is $5.
