Where

Come join us at Estrella Mountain Regional Park. It's located west of Phoenix off Interstate 10, about a 35-minute drive from the church. Check out the hike at Hike Arizona’s hike description page:  Sierra Estrella, Estrella Mountain Regional Park.  

When

Groups will start hiking at 9:00 AM and everyone should be done by 1:00 PM. Please plan to be at the registration tables by 8:30 AM so you can be assigned to your group and we can start hiking on time.

Location/Directions

Take I-10 west to exit 126 Estrella Parkway.  Turn left (south) and go 5 miles to Vineyard Avenue.  Turn left (east) and go ½ mile to Estrella Mountain Regional Park.  Turn right into the entrance and stay on the main park road as it curves around the grassy picnic area, then curves south.  Just before the Rodeo Arena, the road splits at a "Pavement Ends" sign.  Bear right at the split into a gravel parking lot.  (If you go past the rodeo arena to another trailhead on its east side, you are in the wrong place!)  Parking is limited, so please plan to carpool if at all possible.  See carpooling details below.  Get directions from Calvary Community Church.   Look for Fellowship Adventures signs.

Carpooling

There is limited parking, so we encourage carpooling.  You can sign up for carpooling during the registration process.  For details on carpooling, see the Carpooling section of the "Things to Know" page.

Carpools will meet at Calvary central campus (west side by the mailboxes), with the last carpool leaving at 8:00 AM. Carpool riders should prepare to cover driver’s expenses (gas and any other expenses incurred in transporting passengers to the event).

Cost

Park entrance fee:  $ 7per vehicle

Hiking

This hike will include 4 levels of hiking. (Geckos, please read the special note below.)  You will sign up for a level when registering.  The levels are listed below, or see levels of difficulty for more details.  Remember to bring lots of water.  Although the weather is cooler and more refreshing, you will still need to stay hydrated.

Roadrunners – For the serious, go-fast hiker who desires the challenge of speed and distance (7 to 10 miles) and prefers to race past the sagebrush rather than smell it!

Coyotes – For the recreational hiker who desires energetic physical activity (4 to 7 miles) and the opportunity to stop and smell the sagebrush.

Prairie Dogs – For the casual hiker and families who want to get some exercise (about 3 miles) but stop to enjoy the view and rest as they hike.

Geckos – For the person or family new to hiking or just coming back from a long time away.  This month's trail, approximately 2 miles in length, is quite rocky with uneven terrain, so hiking sticks are recommended. 

Children

Children are more than welcome to join this event, but please read the Children section of the "Things to Know" page before you come. 

        Roadrunners - minimum age of 15*, if experienced

Coyotes - minimum age of 10*, if experienced
