Lookout Mountain Circumference Trail

This hike is rated EASY. Starting at 8 a.m. again.

Come on out for a Saturday morning hike at Lookout Mountain! This trek will take us around the #308 trail in a nice big loop. There are definitely some uphill climbs, so while it's rated easy, first-timers will have to work it a bit. Bring lots of water, snacks, sunscreen, and a camera and sturdy hiking boots are recommended.

DISTANCE: 3.2 miles roundtrip
ELEVATION GAIN: 225 ft more than once
TRAIL STYLE: Loop
DURATION: 1.5 hours
DOGS: Yes, if leashed.
FACILITIES: Bathroom and water fountain
WEBSITE: Trailmap
DIRECTIONS: From the intersection of Cave Creek Rd and Sharon Dr, go West on Sharon to 18th St, head North on 18th St until it ends. The park entrance is on your right hand side. Google maps may lead you astray especially if you approach from the north, so follow these directions as you get close!

    We were fortunate indeed! Perfect weather, great scenery and wonderful group of people. Beverly- I just installed Endomondo on my phone. Can't wait to use it! Thanks Jean and Jim! Hope to see you all out on the trails again soon.

    Whow is what I say!! We had a fantastic mix of people. The return of Beverly was a wonderful and welcomed surprise. I liked seeing all the new hikers. This morning I had the delightful bonus of the lovely choir in the rear. Today’s hike exemplifies what I mean about making new, positive memories.

    What a great hike this morning! Overcast skies kept it nice and cool and so lovely to still see all the yellow flowers. Great group and I think we all learned each other's names! :)
