Looking to embark on a long day hike before the weather heats up? Join the Grayhawk Hiking Club on Saturday, March 29th for one of their all-time favorites, the Seven Springs Loop! This 10-mile loop through the Tonto National Forest, just north of Carefree, is a real treat for seasoned hikers. The difficulty is moderate to strenuous, with an elevation gain of 1,000 feet. There are plenty of rolling hills as well, adding substantially to the accumulated gain.
This hike boasts spectacular views and plenty of variety, with both narrow and wide trails, shaded areas, wide open meadows, rugged boulders, and several water crossings.
Registration for the Seven Springs Loop hike is required on the Meetup site. Participants must join the group and RSVP for the hike. Each member is allowed a maximum of 2 guests. This is a day hike with an expected completion time of 5-6 hours, so make sure to bring plenty of water, snacks and good hiking shoes. Hiking poles are also recommended. If you are interested in carpooling to the trailhead, the group will be meeting at Fry’s on Hayden Road and Thompson Peak Parkway at 7 a.m.
The Grayhawk Hiking Club is just one of many social groups and activities that Grayhawk offers. Grayhawk residents enjoy fitness, golf, tennis, hiking, seasonal events and more. If you wish to begin viewing Grayhawk homes for sale, call (602) 791-0536 or email Carmen@TopScottsdaleHomes.com.
