DIRECTIONS: Follow the Google map link above to Golden Eagle Blvd in Fountain Hills. Drive until the road ends at a community gate. There is a parking lot just before the gate on the left side where we will meet. Space is limited so carpooling is encouraged. There is a short walk from the parking lot to the actual trailhead inside the residential community. Note there is a $2.00 walk-in fee per person for the county park system. Bring exact change.
