    Marco, the Conservancy steward leading the hike did a great job. Sunrise over the mountains was stunning. Early AM mist over Fountain Hills made for dramatic views toward Superstitions. Wish I had brought my Nikon. BJ the steward doing sweep made the hike special by pointing out the flora and fauna. Hats off to all the volunteers.

    Hi All:

    The map attached is not going to help you due to the new access roads. Take Pima north; right (East) on Happy Valley; keep going STRAIGHT at Alma School; twists and turns to eventually become 118th St heading N; take R on Ranch Gate Road (Preserve sign just before); take Ranch Gate E to VERY end (past point where pavement ends); R (south) on 128th Street to trailhead entry.

    Absolutely beautiful out there!! Bill.

    P.S. Deborah, are you still involved in the Conservancy?
