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.
