Sunrise Mountain, Peoria

  • 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: 6:00

    Endurance: 1.5 - 2 hours

    Mileage:5.0 miles

    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

    Leashed dogs OK

    Thank you to Clay and Al for leading the group and providing a new hike when access wasn't available to Sunrise Mountain. It was great hike with wonderful views from each peak we climbed. I enjoyed meeting you all and seeing some familiar faces too. Hope to see everyone at future meet ups.
