Meet at 6:45 am (depart 7:00) at the Park-n-Ride at the southwest corner of I-17 and Bell Road.  We’ll drop cars at the Black Canyon City Trailhead, then proceed back to the Table Mesa Trailhead from where we’ll start. 

The hike is on a well-maintained trail through beautiful Sonoran Desert with great cactus stands.  There’ll be some ups and downs along the way, including two crossings of the Agua Fria River, so call the leader in advance to make sure the River’s not too high.

We’ll wind up at the Rock Springs Café (as in pie for a reward) before proceeding back to Phoenix by way of the starting point. 

Bring plenty of water, sunscreen and wear sturdy hiking boots.
