Meet at 6:30 am (depart at 6:45) at Park-and-Ride on Bell Rd., just west of the I-17.

Our hike, between Prescott Valley and Jerome, will encompass three different trails in a clockwise direction - Yaeger Canyon Trail, the Yaeger Cabin Trail, and the Little Yaeger Canyon Trail. It's a beautiful area with great views of the surrounding mountains, lots of shade, but it starts out with a rather steep climb. Once we conquer the hill, the rest of the hike is very pleasant - almost relaxing!

Bring a minimum 2 quarts of water, salty snacks, and a light lunch. Hiking sticks and sturdy boots are very helpful on this hike - especially while making the initial climb.

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