SW 4.3 mile Scenic Ridge (2~groups)

Needs a location

• Shared event with another Meetup hiking group •

For most hikers, a "relatively easy" 4.3 mile (level 2) "no scrambling" hike, elevation gain 650 feet. From parking area, we first hike around the mountain bend along an old mining road. From this dirt road, we ascend to follow the mountain ridge trail to Ike's Peak and back again. Hiking shoes required - no tennis shoes. ~~~ past hike photos (larger: right-click + open) ~~~ this hike map

NOTES • This hike started with Trail-Seekers. However, most RSVPs are now usually (but not always) by members of a larger Meetup group.
• I don't often take photos on hikes. So, to share with others, please upload your photos to Meetup I will then re-post some to the 2nd Meetup group.

Location is southwest of Rhodes Ranch and Cowabunga Canyon water park near Ft Apache Road. If more than 5 minutes late, spot us walking up the hill.
Note: 8600 (street address) is for GPS reference only.
