Meetup Description: Hi all,
This Sunday, I'm organizing a hike on some of the valley's newest trails. We are taking a walk through the interior of the McDowell Sonoran Preserve. Total distance is 10.5 miles, with some up-and-down hills that add up to about 1900 feet in elevation gain. Views include Thompson Peak, Tom's Thumb, and the desert hills deep within the McDowell Mountains. This is a moderate hike along a system of trails that form a Figure-8 configuration, so you can turn back early if you wish.
Time and Place:
Sunday 3/8, 9 am
SE Corner of Union Hills and Thompson Peak, SE corner of health club parking lot.
(take 101 to pima, Pima north to Union Hills, east to Thompson Peak)
3L water per person, picnic lunch
Sunblock, hat, bandana
Emergency poncho (forecast looks good but you never know)
Hope you can make this hike!
