Let's wear our green for a St Patty's Day hike. We'll start the hike from the Crosscut parking area on First Water Rd. We'll tale the Treasure Loop inside Lost Dutchman State Park. We'll go to Praying Hands and Green Boulder, and loop back on the Jacob's Crosscut Trail.
The hikearizona.com description says about 4 miles, but let's count on around 6 with hiking from Crosscut. About 1000 ft elevation gain from the description.
Dress layered, in green of course. Bring snacks for while we explore around Praying Hands and Green Boulder. Above all, let's have fun. It should be another gorgeous day in the Superstitions.
As usual, hike at your own risk. You know the drill..........plenty of water, good sturdy hiking shoes, breathable clothing. My Tilley hat is green, so I'll be ready........might have to put a big shamrock on it!!
Let's get our hike on............our luck of the Irish hike!!
See you all at the carpool location. We'll leave there at 8:15. We'll start the hike around 9ish at the Crosscut Parking area.
