NORTHERN GOLDFIELDS DAY HIKE - Salt River
Saturday, December 22, 2012, 08:00am
Leader: Stan Backenstoss ( [masked])
Length: 5 miles or 8 miles
Elev Change: 1600'
MEET in south end of the Home Depot parking lot, Power Rd and Superstition Springs, 8:00 AM to carpool.
This hike has it all. Wonderful colors, interesting rock formations, cool arches, spectacular vistas, and water. We will climb to Sky Island via Gateway Canyon and explore the Goldfield's high country. We will cross the Salt River if the river is low (I expect it to be), otherwise we will use the Blue Point trailhead. A Tonto Pass will be required if we park at Water Users. Water Shoes would be useful.
If not current on your $15.00 annual dues, the hike is $5.00
- Remember ca$h for carpooling and post-hike replentishment.
