Trekking on Tuesdays
TUESDAY HIKES WILL BE SUSPENDED STARTING NOW UNTIL SEPTEMBER OR UNTIL POSTED OTHERWISE
Ben is offering to lead informal hikes in the Anthem area. They would sometimes be exploratory in nature with the trails less defined. There would be no need to notify me of your intent to participate. Showing up with shoes, a water supply, a camera for recording images of great high desert vegetation or Hohokam ruins, and in possession of a need to know what lies just over the next hill is all that would be required. The meeting time is 8:00 AM Tuesdays. The meeting place is behind Freddy’s Steakburger located in Anthem Crossroads shopping center. Just use exit 227 from Interstate 17 northbound and head east to Freddy’s in the Anthem Crossroads shopping center. This exit is 15 miles north of Bell Road.
Thursday Thunderbird Park Hikes
Starting time moved to 6:00 AM starting July 18th
The Thursday hikes at Thunderbird Regional Park will continue to be led by Marie. Unless you are notified by email, the Thursday hike at Thunderbird will take place every week and will be available at the same time as the alternate hike option
Thunderbird hikes: Enter Thunderbird Park off of 59th Ave, take an immediate right and drive to the last parking lot – stay to the right as you drive and do not take the curve to the left.
Alternate Thursday Hikes
Let’s get hiking! If any of you would like to lead a Saturday hike please let Gail know and she will send it out to all the club members.
