Note we are moving the start time back to our later summer time.
We will meet at the Mormon Trail trail head on 24th street south of Baseline Rd. Just go South on 24th Street from Baseline Rd. The parking lot is on the right immediately after 24th Street ends and you are forced to turn left.
Intermediate level hiking due to elevation gain. Please evaluate your skill level before doing this hike. We will take the Mormon Trail for about 1.1 miles and gain about 980 feet of elevation to the National Trail, then to Hidden Valley Trail going through "Fat Man's Pass" and back to the Mormon trail. This is a loop hike, and will be approximately 3.5 miles long.
Rattlesnakes, and other critters are prevalent in this area and capable of defending themselves Please pay careful attention to the ground in front of you and to where you place your hands, and feet.
You will be responsible for your own safety, and equipment.
Equipment: Minimum of 2 liters water (camel pack) sturdy hiking shoes, boots, trail runners. (loose gravel, do not wear tennis shoes) First aid kit. Flashlight or headlamp.
