As things are rapidly changing and I will be moving out of state, I will want a fellow local to assume administrator rights to this page when the move completes.

If you'd like to take over the majority of posts to this page, after I depart, please let me know.

This is something I created in a marketing course in 2013 and 50k plus people engage in it. I never expected this! With that being said, if you hike the mountain often and would like to keep the community engaged let me know. We will get you up and running ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜

I will still stay as the page owner but just more for the sake of being unable to transfer the whole page to someone else.

Friendly reminder to stay #hydrated

A dehydrated hiker is being helped off of Camelback Mountain by firefighters. So far today weโ€™ve hit 100 degrees, which is the hottest day of 2019.

Stay hydrated! With water of course...

Beautiful view over South Mountain these past few days. It is not too often we get any sort of weather event that truly compliments the peaks. Hope you are all hiking these trails, May is around the corner and that means we will be back into near 100 degree temps.

[10/11/18]   How have the trails been lately ?

First and foremost, I want to thank everyone who engaged in this post and possibly helped a man who is clearly in need of great help for a number of reasons. In many ways I had hoped I could in some way do more to help but as you can see my available budget for promotion to make this situation relevant has been reached at this time. Despite this, the campaign is still ongoing and we can all help if possible. I do ask, if you have a place in your heart to do so, to share this link with as many as you can.

Also - I have not lost sight of my page and context. We all love hiking, nature and the serenity it provides. I look forward to seeing more great posts from our community as they hike the trails and experience the beauty of true Arizona life.

An old coworkers wife has decided to stop chemo treatment and go on hospice care. It has been a very rough few years for them, I've been following.

Another dust storm! This monsoon season has been sporadic but I am glad it rained some. You can almost see south mountain in the background.

These dust storms really hit south mountain quite hard.

TGIF - Thank God It's Friday! I hope you all had a great week and now get a break from the daily #grind . ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘Š

A fellow hiker found this item on the trails and still has it. If it is yours, please reach out. Will require the month in which it was lost for verfication of course, but it would be great to get it back to its owner.

It looks like we will be a bit cooler next week and that means perfect hiking weather. Stay hydrated, know your limits and be safe this summer.

Please watch out for snakes and other forms of wildlife. They rarely, if ever strike first but they do exist. Glad to see everyone enjoying the trails and finding time to post the great pictures.

Not many on the trails today! I will assume that we all have this mindset at the moment.

Share if you feel the same

[01/31/17]   Has anyone been out hiking lately ? It is a great way to reduce stress and provides you with an opportunity to clear your mind! To that regard, is there anyone that has been hiking lately that would like to share a photo of their experience?

#10232016 Another beautiful sunset.

It is that time of the year again when we get to enjoy our beautiful surroundings. I hope everyone gets a chance to get out and hike as much as possible due to the great weather.

Just keep in mind that if you start your hike around 5 pm, you will need a flash light and be sure to stay hydrated.

Hopefully those who like this page will start to post pictures of their hikes so that everyone can see just how beautiful Arizona can be.

Who else thinks they should place a giant Christmas tree on top of south mountain? It would be both epic and iconic :)

Did anyone else enjoy a nice Sunday hike ? The weather was beautiful today and the views were outstanding.
