Hike Papago Park with optional FREE walk through the Botanical Gardens after

This hike is rated EASY.

Come join me and have some fun at Papago.

Dogs are NOT ALLOWED at the Botanical Gardens so please leave your pet at home unless you do not plan to attend the after hike activity.

We will hike the double butte trail along with climbing around and on the buttes. It is up to you how much you want to climb. You're encouraged to bring a camera and must bring at least 2 liters of water per person and sturdy hiking footwear.

If you want you may join me after the hike for a trip to the Botanical Gardens which is FREE from 1:00 pm - 8:00 pm. We will head over after the hike approximately 6:00.

This hike is cross posted with Phoenix 2-Hour. Please only sign up on one, it is less confusing for me ;)

    Please update your RSVP if you cannot attend so someone on the wait list can go in your place. There are currently 20 bikers attending and 35 on the wait list.

    I hike Papago fairly regularly and would be happy to take out another group so the "Wait List" people can enjoy this hike.

      Thanks Cindy. This is crossposted with Phoenix 2-Hour with a total of 20 hikers signed up now and a wailtlist of 27. This is a beginner hike so we hike slow and stop often. Would you mind being the sweep? There is always a variety of hiking levels so it's hard to keep everyone together. There will be some slower beginners. If you can sweep I'll open up the RSVP's to total 15 (30 total) on each list.

    • Donna M.

      Wow, correction, there are 38 on the combined waitlist.

  • Tiffany T.

    I would sure like to go to this...

    I am really looking forward to this hike.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
