Description: Pass Mountain Trail is a great loop trail in the Northeast Valley. It is located in the Usery Mountain Park. We will head out counter-clockwise: The first part of the hike will be fairly flat. As we round the Mountain and start heading North we will hit most of the elevation of the hike...the rest of the hike will be easy ups and downs as we pass through many washes. Once we complete the hike, we will head over to a private balcony about 5 miles away and watch the sunset. Bring your drink of choice for watching a beautiful sunset. For dinner or snacks, we can discuss food options as we get closer to the date of the hike. This event is limited to paid members. See Membership and Dues.
