This hike is a mix of easy (2 miles), moderate (2 mile) and difficult (.5 miles) terrain to give you a sense of how your body (and gear) respond over the different grades you will encounter on the Camino. In addition, this hike features 6 areas of Petroglyphs from the Hohokam Indians – all within just 1.5 miles of the trailhead.
If you want to stay for hot chocolate and mixers, bring a mug and we will gather at the picnic benches. If you want to join us only for the hot chocolate happy hour, you are very welcome but you need to enter the park before sunset when the gate closes.

Facilities: There is water & restrooms at the trailhead.

Bring: Water, hat, headlamp, hiking poles, your own first aid kit, snacks, and a leave-no-trace toilet kit.
