Let's hike Three of the Seven Summits: Lookout Mtn, North Mtn and Shaw Butte

Due to popular demand, we'll expand this session to include 3 summits: Lookout Mountain, North Mountain and Shaw Butte. Feel free to hike just this first summit if you like. At 8:30, we'll meet in the parking lot at 14441 N18th Street - look for my little red lexus. After completing Lookout, we'll drive to North Mountain Visitor Center near Thunderbird on 7 Street.

Lookout Mountain:3.2 miles and 475 ft gain

North Mountain: 2.3 miles and 614 ft gain

Shaw Butte: 5.2 miles and 670 ft gain

Total: 10.7 miles, so about 5-6 hours

This is a Fitness Hike and we keep a solid pace; not recommended for beginners.

As always, you need: hat, water, snacks, sunscreen, good hiking shoes/boots.

      No problem, I was late anyway. I went to buy hat and then went to the North Mountain visitor center to make the hike by myself. Hiked 2 hours, it was nice :).

    That was a great hike -- Thanks, Brenda! I had a great time and met lots of nice people. I've posted some maps, and will post some pictures later.

    Great group! We really knocked it out of the park, so to speak. I feel pleasantly spent. Thanks all!

    Hi Brenda,
    I see that the map link points to a spot in a housing tract just south of a park. Is the parking lot that you are referring to the one at the east end of E. Evans Dr. (which intersects N. 18th Street near its northern end)?

      Hey George, that's exactly right! Great Map:) Sorry I was out last night, so hope you get this this morning.

    Hi Brenda,
    I assume when (if) Kami changes her rsvp I will then be off the wait list. It did seem a little odd that you limited the participation for an activity at public hiking sites where there will be many, many other hikers. :-)

      Hi Dave, the reason I limit attendees is that I feel responsible as a leader to keep track of each person in my group: make sure they get off the mountain, help them if they get hurt etc. Of course, anyone is welcome to hike any of the trails without signing up.

    March 2, 2013

    • Brenda

      Hi Jill, about 10 am at N Mtn. Text me at[masked] to tee up if you like.

    I'm sorry, myself and my guest's aren't able to make the hike Sunday. Bummer, as I was looking forward to it.

  • Kami F.

    I'm checking to see if my guests can come. I'll let you know either way.

    can't wait to meet other hikers.
