B LENGTH: 6 mi ELEV. GAIN: 1500 ft PACE: Fast

Meet at 5:00 am at the Lost Dog Wash Trailhead (1 mile north of Shea Boulevard at the end of 124th Street).  The gates open at 4:59 am.  

Yes, you can hike in Phoenix during the summer – you just have to start early.  The panoramic views from Sunrise Peak are great at any time, but especially early in the morning.  The trail is out-and-back, so anyone wishing to shorten it or go slower can do so easily.  

Although we’ll be finished before the day gets too hot, bring plenty of water and wear sturdy hiking boots.  

Cost to non-members is $5.
