Lookout Mountain Circumference Trail

This hike is rated EASY. Starting at 7:30 a.m.

Come on out for a Saturday morning hike at Lookout Mountain! This trek will take us around the #308 trail in a nice big loop. There are definitely some uphill climbs, so while it's rated easy first-timers will have to work it a bit.  Bring lots of water, snacks, sunscreen, and a camera. Sturdy hiking boots are recommended.

This hike is cross-posted with Phoenix (2-Hour) Beginner Hikers, so there will be some brief rest periods throughout the hike.

DISTANCE: 3.4 miles roundtrip
ELEVATION GAIN: 225 ft. more than once
TRAIL STYLE: Loop
DURATION: 1.5 hours
DOGS: Yes, if leashed.
FACILITIES: Bathroom and water fountain
WEBSITE: Trailmap

DIRECTIONS: From the intersection of Cave Creek Road and Sharon Drive, go West on Sharon to 18th Street; head North on 18th Street until it ends. The park entrance is on your right-hand side. Google maps may lead you astray especially if you approach from the north, so follow these directions as you get close!

    Hello All!

    I've been having an unusual difficulty uploading photos to P2HB and to Trail Mix this weekend. Today the photos are going to Trail Mix O.K. There seems to be a weird cut-off time or limit for P2BH. I'll keep chugging along until all are uploaded. Today's Levee Trail Hike photos are complete on TRAIL MIX ONLY.

    Thank you for your patience.

      Great map, Steven! I can even see where we paused to look at the enticing swimming pool.
