Lookout Mountain Circumference Trail

This hike is rated EASY.

Starting at 8:30 a.m.

Come on out for an early 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.  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.

NOTE:  Park restrooms open approximately at sunrise.

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.

    This was a really FUN group and a great hike: fast, not too furious but tough enough that you feel it in the right places. Thanks, Jim!

    Really nice, social Group this morning with lots of new faces. After the peacefulness of the holiday hikes, it was good to hear the laughter again.

    Great to see April, Asta, and David again after six or seven months! Time flees so rapidly…

    It will be interesting to see how many folks were able to successfully transform themselves from being cold remedies into porn stars. Ahem.

    Thank you to Cindy for being my bodyguard, especially today. Thanks to Lori M. for sounding so familiar. And as always ~ special thank you to Sabrina and to Simba for being such superb Sweeps!
