The incredible weather we’ve been having is calling to everyone to get outdoors! Join Gary and the rest of us this coming Saturday morning. We’ll hike the Granite Mountain loop in the north region of the McDowell Sonoran Preserve. It’s reasonably easy with a total of 400 ft elevation gain/loss, with great views.

We’ll meet at 8:15am at the trailhead to start hiking around 8:30am. See you then!

Trailhead Directions: From the 101, take the Pima/Princess exit and turn north on Pima Rd. Continue north to Dynamite Road and turn right (east). Turn left (north) on 136th St. Follow the signs to the trailhead parking. 

Also please check the calendar. If there is an open date and you would like to lead a hike, please send an email to with the date and location of the hike to be added to the calendar.
