Papago Park Evening Hike

Enjoy a desert evening outdoors ...on a Papago Park Evening Hike.

"Trek with us" .. We'll meet at the Gazebo by 625 N. Galvin Pkwy.

Beginning on mostly level dirt trails, then it's up up up ..climb Big Buttes "we like it" challenging loose rocky trail to Big Butte's summit. It's a 300' elevation gain no matter what side to the top!  We'll then descend "What goes up must come down" ..  walking to the "colosseum stairs". It's our stair masters lap ! .. stretch and get the heart rate up a tic or two. Then we're off on level trails to Little Butte, climb the rocky trails there, enjoy the panoramic City of Phoenix towers silhouette, swallows flying around and the gentle desert breeze .. and finally to mostly dirt trails, towards our start and finish. About a 1 Hour to 1.5 Hour trail experience.

Train for the more advanced meetup Hikes or just enjoy improving your personal fitness and well being. How about both?

Camelbacks work well for packing water, sturdy shoes for rock grip and uneven terrain ...all for your comfort.

I hope to see you there.

Call me at[masked] if needed.

For those in the mood, we can go to Duke's afterward for refreshments (7607 E McDowell Rd Scottsdale, AZ 85257)

    Was thinking next week, not tomorrow. Can't do it tomorrow, but would love to another time.
