It was a gorgeous day for a hike and Sun City hikers took full advantage.
Two B hikers and two C hikers from the Sun City Hikers club set out on an exploratory scout of Pass Mountain via Usery Park in Mesa. The trail highlights the interface between urban Mesa and the Tonto National Forest.
The 7.5-mile loop trail gave breathtaking views of raw mountains and lowland desert. The hikers were able to find a route for the B group as well as two possible routes that would be suitable for C hikers.
Hike leaders Ken and Beth Smith from the B group and Deb Frank of the C group on this trip, as well as the rest of the hike leaders in the club, are continuously scouting to make hikes as safe and enjoyable as possible for club members.
