Hiking- It?s a new year and it?s a perfect time to hike South Mountain. You can find us at the Ramada/trailhead at 8 am and we will start the fun by hiking 1-2 mile section of Pima Canyon Trail. The trail is fairly flat and should only take us about an hour to an hour and half (round trip). This is a beginner hike/leisure walk that is dog and kid friendly. So dust off your hiking boots, spray on some sun block, and get ready for a fun morning out on the trail!

We will be collecting 5 dollars per adult and 3 dollars per kid for mini-subs platter from Subway and beverages will be provided by the organizers.

Directions:

To get there, it may be a little confusing. I hardly remember myself, but look at this map:
http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&source=s_d&saddr=W+Baseline+Rd&daddr=E+Pima+Canyon+Rd&hl=en&geocode=FZhP_QEdcWhT-Q%3BFTwU_QEdFT5T-Q&mra=dme&mrcr=0&mrsp=0&sz=15&sll=33.374011,-111.97506&sspn=0.016378,0.038495&ie=UTF8&ll=33.370678,-111.972141&spn=0.016379,0.038495&z=15
In a nutshell, get to 48th street. You can either go North from Elliot, or South from Baseline and snake your way past The Point Hotel. There should be road called Pima Canyon Rd that you turn West on. ** See Map! **
Once on Pima Canyon Rd, follow it down. It'll dead end at the parking lot. Park. ** You can plug this into maps.google.com to see where it's at: from: S 48th St to: 33.362942,-111.98512
