New Year's Day Hike Mormon Trail South Mountain Phoenix

Let's kick off the new year with a hike!

January 1, 2014
9:00AM
Mormon Trail head South Mountain.
Take Baseline to 24th Street. 24th Street will end at at the parking lot.

The Mormon Trail part of the hike is the most challenging. 1000ft elevation gain in less than one mile. It's short and steep but will get your heart going.Don't worry, we will take breaks along the way. Slow and steady will be the pace. When we reach the top of Mormon we will descend into Hidden Valley with beautiful rock formations and home of the Natural Bridge and Fat Man's Pass. You will forget that you are in the city at all.

The trail head is located at the end of 24th street past Baseline and Dobbins in the South Mountain Preserve. There is plenty of free parking in the parking lot.

We will meet at the trail head at 9AM (for all of you who are out late the night before)

What to bring you ask, sturdy footwear (hiking shoes/boots are best) WATER, snacks and perhaps a light lunch that we can eat along the trail when we take a break. Oh and did I mention WATER!

Please RSVP to HIKERBECKY or DESERTJULZ
