Wandering Soles Anniversary Bonfire - South Mountain Park (Phoenix)

Description: Attention club members! Let’s celebrate our 18th year of being the “Wandering Soles”… Yes, we've been around that long! 18 years calls for adult sized accommodations so the Big Ramada in South Mountain Park has been reserved this year. Share a fun evening with your “Sole” hikers around a bonfire in scenic desert surroundings with a grand overlook of the city. Enjoy food compliments of the club (hamburgers, brats, along with some sides). The club will also supply drinking water and of course, a cake for dessert. We are allowed a contained fire pit and we will have a beer permit. This event is limited to paid members and their guests. See Membership and Dues.

Directions: From the corner of Baseline and Central, go south on Central. Continue part way up South Mountain. When you come to the 2nd guard shack and some small buildings, you will be turning soon. Turn at the next right a short distance further. Follow this road to the Ramadas and look for the Wandering Soles sign. Here is a map.

Special instructions: BYOB (No bottles allowed). Bring some warm layers; it usually gets cold after the sun goes down. Also, bring a folding chair (if you have one) for around the fire. IMPORTANT: No one can enter the park after 7 PM and we must be out by 11 PM.

    Jeff, you did an incredible job. One of the most scenic ramadas in the central valley. Hope the Phx. Parks Dept let's us back next year! I'm sure it was left cleaner than we found it.

    Did anyone find an extendable skewer mixed in with their gear? I have not seen it since the bonfire. Thanks.

      Darn no Bill & I don't have it. It seems the club funds should reimburse you if it doesn't show up. Good luck.
