MEET at the Cave Creek Recreation Area, 32nd Street north of Carefree Hwy, 9:30 am (Entrance fee required - bring CA$H!)

Come celebrate the 2014 New Year with us! The Go John Trail is a surprisingly beautiful loop through the mountains north of Phoenix with 1,000 ft. of mostly gradual elevation change. At the top of the first ridge, you are greeted with a view of ranges to the north that top a field of green saguaros and paloverde trees. The trail is easy to follow and offers twists and turns that showcase the surrounding desert and interesting rock formations.

After the hike, we will enjoy the park’s facilities with fun, games, and a BBQ. Bring something to burn, your favorite beverage, and a dish to share.

Note: There is a $6 park entrance fee per vehicle.

Please RSVP with the hike leader before Jan 2nd.
