Hiking Schedule Recaps

It is critical that you read and understand the hike description, distance, and elevation before deciding on any hike.  This information is found in the A, B, and C hike description sections below and on our website at suncityhikers.org.  This information is provided to ensure that the hike is appropriate for you and will be safe and enjoyable.  Call the hike leader if you have any questions.  Please arrive 15 minutes prior to the meeting time to sign in for the hike.  Contact the hike leader if you plan to meet the group at the trailhead rather than at the meeting place indicated in the bulletin or are bringing a guest.
