New to Fellowship Adventures?

Please review the Things to Know information.  

For your first hike with us, we highly recommend registering for one level below the level you think fits your ability.  Also, please remember to eat before you come so you will have the energy to hike. 

Location/Directions

From Calvary's central campus, take I-17 north to AZ-101 Loop east to exit 36 for Princess Dr./Pima Rd. Take exit 36 and go straight on Pima Road.  Drive less than half a mile to Bell Rd and turn left.  Drive east and take a right at N. Thompson Peak Pkwy; then in less than a quarter mile, take a right onto E. McDowell Foothills Drive. Look for the Fellowship Adventures signs.

Hiking

This hike will include 4 levels of hiking.  You will sign up for a level when registering.  The levels are listed below, or see levels of difficulty for more details.

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 will 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.  They will do about 2 miles of relatively flat trail.

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
