Participants should have previous desert hiking experience due to the length and difficulty of the hike
Hike distance will be between 8-12 miles. This week's hike starts OUTSIDE OF THE PARK at the Tom's Thumb Trailhead, off of 128th Street in Scottsdale (off of Dynamite). Park access from this trailhead is “hike only” so please come prepared with a $2 (cash) park entrance fee. This is a difficult hike that involves a good amount of elevation and loose rocks. A hiking pole is recommended for this hike that starts in the McDowell Sonoran Preserve. Bring plenty of water, snacks and make sure to have comfortable shoes, clothing and a hat. Hike will be led by Kevin B.
