Inspiring Connections Outdoors is an outdoor experience for youth in Phoenix through the Sierra Club.

ICO is dedicated to providing outdoor opportunities to people that would not otherwise have them, including low-income youth of diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds. ICO is made up entirely of volunteer leaders who organize a variety of outdoor adventures, including hiking, camping, mountain biking, caving and service learning for children & youth. If you would like to learn more about our great program and how to get involved as a volunteer and hike leader- please join us at the LUX coffee house to discuss upcoming hikes, and activities.

We'll hike the Pipeline Canyon Trail to the Yavapai point trail and the lake overview. 'C' hike. 5 miles RT, 400' EC. Then we'll have a picnic lunch, (bring your own). After lunch, we'll head for the visitors center and do the short Roadrunner Trail (1.2 miles RT) on the lake's shore by the dam. We can do some swimming from the Roadrunner trail. You're welcome to do some or all of this. Contact Pete Weinelt at[masked] or [masked]. Phoenix Note the Length and EC is different then the write-up in the Echo because of the addition of the Yavapai point trail, which we wound up doing the last time out [by popular choice].
