In a seismic shift from our regular 2nd Thursday, I am moving this hike across the street to Sunrise. These trails are a step below the ruggedness of Westwing, but are just as undulating. We will start at the school's back parking lot and proceed south all the way to the far end of the park before looping back over a different route for the return.
Meet time: 5:30
Endurance: 1.5 - 2 hours
Trails, difficulty: Narrow but maintained hiking trail, moderate-difficult
Elevation Gain: 420'
Equipment: Your sturdy and broken in hikers, at least some water and a light source
Directions: Directions: From loop 101 west, exit 75th Avenue and go right (north) to Deer Valley road. Go left (west) to 83rd avenue. Go right (north) and continue past Happy Valley, past Jomax, to High Desert Dr (at the traffic light). Go left past the West Wing school and go right into it's back parking lot.
The Hiking Hikers Hiking Group (“3H”) is an outdoor activities group, that seeks, through its members and member volunteers, to provide a supportive, nurturing environment for people to enjoy and explore the outdoors; increase awareness of and protect beautiful wild places; and promote physical conditioning and encourage personal growth.
The 3H encourages its members, comprised of singles, committed couples and married couples from the early twenties to the late sixties and beyond, to be well-prepared for each event attended by taking personal responsibility for their own safety and educating themselves on the skills and knowledge needed to be safe in the many places near and far that this group visits.
Education, common sense, respect for others and the willingness to help, by all of us, provides a fun, safe, and positive experience for everyone.
