Hey everyone that time of the week again! I want to invite everyone to come on out this week to hike with us. We will be hiking at south mountain this week on the Ranger trail. We will be meeting at the 5 tables. We will be there at 6 am to meet and greet with anyone who would like to come out with us. Hiking will commence at 6:30am. This is a moderate hike 1.7 miles each way with about 800 ft in elevation change. Please wear appropriate shoes and remember to bring water. It's winter yes but that has nothing to do with dehydration!

This is also a special Hike because it is Aznerd's birthday he is turning 28 this year! He is my biggest cheer leader and motivator.

Here is the info the city says about the ranger trail!

Ranger Trail
Ranger Trailhead – From the Central Avenue entrance, proceed one mile and turn left at the one mile marker. Make next right into the the Five Tables picnic area, then park in the paved split-railed parking area. The trail head is located at the back of Five Tables picnic area alongside an information kiosk.
The Ranger Trail provides a gradual climb through the foothills approaching the park’s roadway. This trail also provides alternative routes through connections with the Derby Loop, Bajada Trail, and Las Lomitas Loop, while traveling upward to the roadway. To reach the National Trail along the ridgeline, continue across the road and climb the steep switchbacks to reach the saddle in the mountain just east of “Goat Hill”.
Distance: 1.7 miles one way
Difficulty: Moderate - steep switchbacks toward the top end.
Elevation Change: Approximately 800 feet.

Here is a link to a map of the park
