Arizona Trailblazers Hiking Club
Thunderbird Day Hike
when Monday, December 31, 2018
where Thunderbird Conservation Park
the hike     This will be a little romp through the hills. Start from the back of the amphitheater and do a loop up and around this hill. At the top of the hill we can look around the Phoenix area. Continue around the hill, then we’ll be back at the cars, so persons who only want a "D" hike can stop here.
    For the "C" hike, continue across 59th Ave. on a bridge and up the Arrowhead Trail. This is a little more of a climb. We will stop at the top to see the views. Then it is time to go down the other side and around the hill to return to the cars.
    If persons tell me that they are willing to donate $1 to the cause, I can pick up some sparkling cider for after the hike.
    We may stop for lunch after the hike.
