Go outside this "Black Friday" and work off the Thanksgiving meal with a 1.8-mile one-way hike up the Yavapai Point Trail with Ranger Eric where we will be able to take in stunning views of the Sonoran Desert and Lake Pleasant, as well as talk about the local flora and fauna. The hike is rated as moderate, with some rocky and uneven surfaces. Please dress in layers, wear protective clothing or sunblock for sun exposure, wear sturdy footwear, and carry ample water, electrolytes, and snacks for yourself. Restrooms are located at the trailhead.
MEETING LOCATION: We will meet at the Cottonwood Day Use Area accessed from the North Entrance Station. If the parking lot by the restrooms is full, you can park in the picnic area parking nearby. See park map here: https://www.maricopacountyparks.net/assets/1/6/lake-pleasant-8x111.pdf
