Hike Papago Park with optional FREE walk through the Botanical Gardens after

This hike is rated EASY.

Come join me and have some fun at Papago.

Dogs are NOT ALLOWED at the Botanical Gardens so please leave your pet at home unless you do not plan to attend the after hike activity.

We will hike the double butte trail along with climbing around and on the buttes. It is up to you how much you want to climb. You're encouraged to bring a camera and must bring at least 2 liters of water per person and sturdy hiking footwear.

If you want you may join me after the hike for a trip to the Botanical Gardens which is FREE from 1:00 pm - 8:00 pm. We will head over after the hike approximately 6:00.

This hike is cross posted with Trailmix. Please only sign up on one, it is less confusing for me ;)

DIRECTIONS: Follow the google map link above. If coming from 202 to Priest to Gavin Parkway, turn left at light (NOT towards the zoo which requires a right turn at this light). immediately turn right to the first ramada. This can be confusing, please leave early to allow time to find us.

Remember, as always YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY.

  • Charles L C.

  • Tara B.

    Not sure how I was able to sign up today, I had an unexpected day off. If I should be on the list, let me know.

    May 14, 2013

  • karen g.

    I hope emails go out to everybody or text because there was such a long wait list. I was feeling too guilty to go on this so I'm opening it up for people that were available above me If I see by 2 o'clock that people haven't signed up, then I'll sign up again

  • karen g.

    Ok. I just didn't want to step on anyone's toes seeing that it is my first hike with the group.

    1 · May 13, 2013

  • Donna M.

    Karen, yes when a spot becomes available an e-mail goes out to the wait list. The first person to respond gets the spot.

    May 13, 2013

  • karen g.

    Since I was not the first one on the waiting list, do you want me to give up the spot I took? I was emailed an invitation to go to it because it said there was a spot that opened up and I was invited to attend so I checked yes and I'm on the hike. I assumed other people turned it down but I will be glad to give my spot out to the first person on the waitlist if I'm not at the top of it please respond

    May 13, 2013

  • Donna M.

    Please update your RSVP if you cannot attend so someone on the wait list can go in your place. There are currently 20 bikers attending and 35 on the wait list.
