Meet at 6:30 am (depart 6:45) at the CVS Pharmacy on the NW corner of Brown & Ellsworth Roads in Mesa (exit off the 202 Freeway and drive east on Brown Road). I can also meet you at the trailhead if you pay $6 or have a County parks pass.  I have a pass.

The trail is well maintained, but steep and rocky in places. We'll be in the shade for approximately two thirds of the hike. The trail gets steeper as you ascend, but the views are worth it. Pop out of bed early and join me for some exercise.

Hiking time will be around 2 hours, allowing for a few breaks. Bring hat, water, and sunscreen.

Please check the website or email the leader in case the hike is canceled due to rain.

Cost to non-members is $5. Only guests and new members need to contact the hike leader prior to the event.
