Lookout Mountain Circumference Trail

This hike is rated EASY.

Starting at 6:00 a.m.

Come on out for an early SUNDAY morning hike at Lookout Mountain and beat the heat! 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.  The pace will be moderate with a few rest stops along the way.

Bring lots of water, snacks, sunscreen, and a camera.  Sturdy hiking boots are recommended.

DISTANCE: 3.4 miles roundtrip
ELEVATION GAIN: 250 feet more than once
TRAIL STYLE: Loop
DURATION: 1.5 hours
DOGS: Yes, if leashed
FACILITIES: Bathroom and water fountain
WEBSITE: Trail Map
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!

    Hey! We almost had an "all-Female" hike after the shortcut gentlemen peeled off for the summit. Why the early departure, guys?

    5 no-shows and 7 drop-outs; shame on P2BH again!

    It was nice to meet brand-new hikers Christine and Melinda. And it was great to see Earnestine, Jean, and Kelly return after the summer off. Welcome back!

    It is enlightening to know that Terri is our BOLD one who will go knocking on strangers' car windows at even the slightest suggestion. "Terrific Terri!" I can see a new role for you…

    REALLY GREAT WEATHER when the breeze kicked in and the beneficial cloud cover wafted to us. Wasn't it fantastic? Even I was virtually dry instead of being my own auto-soaker and drip machine, which was different.

    Nice hike. I hope you enjoyed it. Thank you all for coming!

    Can I be wait listed for this hike? I'd love to come but there are no spots left.

      A spot opened on P2BH, so I opened up a spot on Trail Mix to reflect the change.

      I just saw a spot was open on the p2bh meetup so I snagged that, thanks
