B- LENGTH: 8.5 mi ELEV GAIN: 1400 ft PACE: Medium

Meet at 8:00 am (depart at 8:15) at the Park-and-Ride on the south side of Bell Rd., just West of I-17.

Join MTTM for a loop hike and a pot luck picnic in the White Tanks Regional County Park. We will head out on the Ford Canyon Trail and return on a different route, given the difficulty of one section of Ford Canyon. Apres-hike, we will see what meal we can make from what everyone brings!

Contact the leader by the Friday before so we can organize the meal and trip. Also, if there is interest in a "base camp" group to light up some briquets, then great! $6 entry fee per vehicle, unless driver has a County Parks pass. Dress and equip for February in the desert with a minimum of 3 liters of water. Cost to non-members is $5. Leader will wear whatever color of face paint you bring!
