Meet at 9:30 am (depart at 9:45) at the Burger King on Power Road just south of Hwy 60 (NE corner of Power Road and Superstition Springs Blvd.) or meet us at the trailhead no later than 10:15 am.  If you chose to meet at the trailhead, take Brown Road east / turn north on Idaho Road and park on the right side of the road where Idaho Road dead ends at the mountain.

This is a loop hike in interesting washes, dirt roads and horse trails. Variety of trail conditions - sandy in the wash to sometimes rocky on the trail. Enjoy many scenic views of the beautiful Goldfield Mountains. The hike up to the arch is steep and rocky, but the arch can be seen below if anyone doesn't want to make the climb. The hike starts near a neighborhood at the end of Idaho Road, but you soon disappear into the Goldfields.

Bring water, sunscreen, hat, boots and a snack.  Cost to non-members is $5. Guests and new members should contact the hike leader prior to the hike.
