Hiking

ThThird Wednesday of each month at 8 AM  

**** Holiday Schedule in November ****




 

Friends in the Hills - Hiking Group

Fun Monthly planned hikes with Friends.

NOTE:  We will not be hiking on the regular hike day (third Wednesday of the month) because that is the day right before Thanksgiving.  Instead we have moved both hikes to the Tuesday after Thanksgiving November 27.    

REGULAR HIKE:  TALIESAN OVERLOOK AT LOST DOG TRAILHEAD
This will be about a five mile round trip hike on the Lost Dog Wash Trail that leads to the Taliesan Overlook.  The view from up top is impressive - overlooking a lot of Scottsdale.  The trails at Lost Dog are all rocky - so wear appropriate footwear.  There are some ups and downs, but not extreme.  Overall a moderate hike.  Lunch to follow at the DC Bar & Grill at the Desert Canyon Golf Course (optional).   

For the REGULAR HIKE: meet at the Safeway parking lot near the gas station at 8:00am.

To sign up for the REGULAR HIKE contact Carol Carriere.

SHORTER HIKE:  VERDE TRAIL
This will be a 3 mile round trip on the Verde trail which starts at the North Trail trailhead at McDowell Mountain Park.  The hike is mostly smooth with a couple of short rocky areas and 114 feet elevation change.  The trail travels to the outskirts of Rio Verde through lush desert and has gorgeous views of the surrounding mountains.  Lunch to follow at DC Bar & Grill at the Desert Canyon Golf Course (optional).
 

For the SHORTER HIKE:  Meet at the Safeway parking lot at 8:30am. (A half hour after the Regular Hike group meets.)

 Please contact Kathy Helms directly for the SHORTER HIKE.
