Challengingly Easy     1.5 miles     1.5 hours       600 feet

Join me on a sunrise hike to North Mountain Summit! It's only 3/4 of a mile to the towers and its a paved road, with the exception of very steep dirt trail that connects to the paved road.  This dirt trail is the most challenging part of the hike.  We will go at a mild pace

We will start from North Mountain Park which is right off of 7th St. and Peoria Ave. Park at Maricopa Area. The trail will start out very steep and rocky with some step ups. The paved portion is a gradual steep climb. We will hike to the gate at the top, take a break, and enjoy the view. We will then go down the same way we came up. 

What to bring: You're encouraged to bring snacks, a camera, and must bring at least 2 liters of water per person and sturdy walking footwear

DISTANCE: 1.5 miles roundtrip
