This month we’ll be hiking in the Northern Region of the Preserve from trailheads north of Dynamite Road.  The hikes will generally be relatively long and flat.  Check the schedule each week because we’ll be starting from different trailheads and note that as the days are getting longer and warmer, we’re back to meeting at 7:00 am.

Meet at 7:00 am (start 7:05) at the GRANITE MOUNTAIN TRAILHEAD, located in Scottsdale on 136th Street, 2 miles north of Dynamite/Rio Verde Road. 

This hike will take us on a variety of trails around Cholla and Granite Mountains, including the Corral, Chuckwagon and Balanced Rock Trails.  The distance is long, but the trails are generally flat and soft, so we’ll maintain a fast pace.
