Event Description

Moonlight Hike at Papago Park

For our monthly evening hike, let''s head to Papago Park, located near the Phoenix Zoo and the Botanical Gardens in Phoenix.

Our route will be a four-mile loop, through mostly level desert terrain, that circles around the base of the Papago Buttes. We will sit in the amphitheater along McDowell Road and enjoy the view of Camelback Mountain, downtown, and the panoramic view of the entire valley, before heading back to the trailhead. And so those who were there two months ago won''t feel like it is the exact same hike, we''ll head out in the opposite direction and change up the route a little bit.

We will meet at 6:30 PM at the trailhead, which is located right across the street from the Phoenix Zoo (just west of the traffic light at the corner of Galvin Parkway and Papago Drive. 

It should already be dark by the time we get started, so flashlights are recommended (we have extra''s if you don''t have one. The full moon should be directly overhead, illuminating the way as we enjoy the sights and the feeling of being out in the middle of the desert, when you will actually be right in the middle of the city.

After we are done hiking, we will find a nice place nearby to continue the A2K hikers tradition of good food, cold beverages, and good conversation among friends.

Please remember to bring drinking water for the hike. Hiking boots are recommended, although you can get by with good athletic shoes on this one.
