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.
