Am I able to reply as Tentative? J/K Bro, see you in the morning. Hoping to see others there as well. If you are nervous about the hike, know, you could not possible be a worse hiker then me, and come out in confidence. :)

Nice! I'm not able to make it. Hope you have some others turn out. Even if you don't, post about the hike after!

Hey guys me and my brother aznerd86 are getting together this weekend to do our first hike ever. We are beginners and looking to get out with some of the awesome people on sparks! We are going to be hiking one of the easiest trail on Piestawa peak / dreamy draw. We will be hiking Trail 8A- Quartz Ridge Trail at Piestawa peak / dreamy draw. It is 1.7 miles long and has 500 ft of elevation change, it goes from 1300ft to 1800ft.

ations/piestewa-peak/hiking-trail-map

You can find lots of information about the park at the link including a map and trail description which I will be pasting here as well.

Trail #8A - Quartz Ridge Trail
Length: 1.7 miles
Elevation: 1,300 -1,800 ft.
Multi-use trail
Difficulty: Moderate
The trailhead is located at 32nd Street and Lincoln Drive. There are no restrooms and no drinking water at this parking area.
The Quartz Ridge Trail climbs moderately to connect with the L.V. Yates Trail and Ruth Hamilton Trails, which in turn offer access to the Nature Trail and eventually Trail 100.

We will be there at 6 am this Sunday the 18th and begin our hike at 6:30! The trail entrance is located at 32nd st and Lincoln drive. Please remember to wear appropriate shoes and clothing it may still be chilly at this time of morning. There are no restrooms or water facilities at this location so remember to bring water and stay hydrated.

Again we are beginners, I am 463 lbs my brother is just under 300. We plan on taking this nice and easy. No one will be left behind or pushed. Just a real fun time. This is our first trip out and would love to share it with some like minded sparkers! We plan to be done early enough to make it to church. Hope to see you there guys! emoticon
