Directions to Tom’s Thumb Trail Head:
From anywhere in the Valley, drive to Scottsdale and the 101/Pima intersection. Head north on Pima to Happy Valley Road. Drive east on Happy Valley through Troon. As Happy Valley turns north and becomes 118th Street, look for Ranch Gate Road and continue east/right. Turn south/right on 128th Street to Trail Head. We’ll meet a Trail head building.
Spring Cleaning! Lots of overgrowth. We will be cleaning up the Climber Access Route up to and in and around Hog Heaven. The hike up to the work area may take about 45 minutes to an hour.
Our work session should be concluded prior to lunch time so plan for up to 3 hours of physical work and return to the parking lot before noon.
What to bring:
Bring Loppers for cutting brush. Some Tools will be provided if you don’t have them. Bring suitable clothing and work gloves for trail work. Also bring plenty of fluid and snacks.
Be prepared for anything – hot, dry, wet, or windy. If it looks like rain is possible, bring a rain shell.
