10438 N Fort Mcdowell Road , Fort McDowell, AZ
We will meet at the C-3 Wolf Zone at 6:15am. We will depart the casino parking lot at 6:30am. We will be at the TH at 7:00am. It will be a 15.5 mile RT hike with 4,000 ft in AEG. The hike basically follows an old jeep road all the way to the top. So it a well established trail to say the least. This is a Phoenix local bucket-lister. It's popular because it is so close to Phoenix and gives you a "fast" pretty hard-core workout.
I plan on being back early enough to take a shower and take a nap and eat dinner at home before attending to any activities for the evening, if you are concerned about NYE activities. I too, will have to be some place that evening. Remember, it's on an old jeep road. No route finding and no bushwhacking.....lol....... pretty strait forward workout.
You will top out at 7,128 ft in elevation. It will be cold at the summit, probably in the 30's. Be prepared.
