What we're about

Beginner hikers that don't want to hike alone, no hiker left behind. Exploring San Tan Mountain Regional Park at the moment, and beyond until the heat kicks in them we will travel up North to escape the heat.

Every member is made an Event Organizer! Lace up those shoes and just hike! Arizona has so many beautiful options and we have hikers from all over the valley not just Chandler! Please participate and lead a hike all 290 members cannot go together.

The hiking bears come out of hibernation in October and hike until the summer heat is too much to bare!
