Deems Hill Gang takes a Road Trip to Sunrise Mnt (Peoria)
This hike is rated Intermedie It's time once again for the Deems Hill Gang and Hiking 4 Hops to hit the road and travel west to the next group of mountains. Join us for a moderate paced Hike at Sunrise Mountain in Peoria. Lets do Sunrise one more time before it gets dark too early, and hopefully off by dusk . We will be hiking a series of loops, and over a couple more difficult summits of Sunrise Mountain with the goal of getting off the trails before it gets (fully dark). This hike offers great diversity including some nice trails, a variety of summits, and fantastic views. We will start the hike at West Wing Park and walk over to the Trail Head and start our ascent up to the first peak from there. Bring 2L of water, a camera, headlamp/flashlight and good conversation. We will start at 6:30 PM, and hike the trails to the summits with the setting sun along with city lights below, and some awesome views. After the hike it's not time to run away, and soak your soar feet.....It's time to Celebrate our Hike with Nectar of the Gods (Beer, Wine, whatever your poison) and some to re-fuel our bodies with some food eating, so after the hike we'll take a short ride to the Lakeside Bar and Grill located a few miles west on the NW corner of Happy Valley Rd and Lake Pleasant Parkway. 9980 W Happy Valley Rd, Peoria, AZ[masked] DISTANCE: 5 Miles or so (Maybe, I Guess) ELEVATION GAIN: 600 ft-800- best Guess (What's a couple hundred feet between friends) TRAIL STYLE: Loopish DURATION: 2 hours or less DOGS: No (unless they are great hiking dogs and you are not coming to the bar after) FACILITIES: Yes DIRECTIONS: From I-17 and Happy Valley Rd (exit 218), head west on Happy Valley to Lake Pleasant Parkway.

What we're about

This meetup is for all who love the great outdoors, lacing up those hiking boots, hitting the trails and climbing the summits, and at the end enjoying a nice cold craft beer from a local brewery that appreciates the flavors of great craft beers. So if you love to hike, and you love and appreciate the fine flavors of an Awesome Brew, then Hiking for Hops is the meet up for you. In actuality, if you love to hike and experience the great outdoors, and the good times that follow, even if you don't drink this meetup is for you. Hiking for Hops will offer at least a monthly Hike for Hops that will Hike one of the many trails our state has to offer, then after our adventure, visit one of the many local breweries, brew pubs, or bars that feature craft brewed beers. Many of these business will be generous sponsors of Hiking for Hops, and offer discounts when we visit to our Premium Members. So, are you ready for some fun filled adventures, great beers, fun times, and friendships?....Then Hiker for Hops is the a group for you. So you ask; Why the membership fee? Well, we don't want everyone. We want members who truly want to experience the fun times and adventure the Hiking for Hops Meetup has to offer. We just don't want a collection of names or members who don't participate. Additionally this small dues fee of $10.00/year will offset the cost of making this a Great Meetup by helping establish sponsors, meeting locations, and trails...and also Meetup's fees. And until I see you on the trail, keep Hiking for those Hops.
