Monday Evening Hike - Shaw Butte Loop

  • This location is shown only to members

This hike is rated INTERMEDIATE.

Join me for an evening hike up Shaw Butte. We'll start at the Visitor Center and take the #100 trail into the preserve. When we hit the #306 trail, we'll take it clockwise. We'll go up to the summit and then back down the other side.  The beginning is flat which allows for a warmup. Then we will hike a short steep climb to a saddle which will then take us to Shaw Butte. The majority of the climbing is packed into the middle and it's steep with some loose rocks. From there we will hike to the summit, take a break, and then head down the other side of Shaw Butte. You're encouraged to bring snacks, a camera and  at least 2 liters of water per person and sturdy hiking footwear. You should also bring a flashlight and/or a headlamp.

DISTANCE: 5 miles
: 600 ft
TRAIL STYLE: Lollipop style clockwise
DURATION: ~2  hrs

DOGS: Yes, if leashed
FACILITIES: Bathroom and water fountain
WEBSITE: Trailmap

DIRECTIONS: From I 17 hwy, Exit Thunderbird Rd heading East.  Make a right at 7th St.  On the right hand side about 1/4 mile up you will see a turn for the North Mountain Visitor Center. Turn in there and meet group at the circular cement bench.

    Robert, Carey and I will likely be running 15-20 mins late. I have a work thing that came up. We are still hiking though, and would still like to meet for a cold beverage post hike.
