Sorry for the short notice but this Saturday let’s get together for a group hike to Maricopa Peak in the Ma Ha Tauk range of South Mountain.
It’s the first weekend of the month so the San Juan Road should be open which should provide opportunities for shuttling.
Depending on participation we can do an out n back to the peak (7mi, 1500aeg) a one way shuttle to San Juan lookout (4.4mi 1500aeg), or even a full loop (9mi, 1900ft). Let’s be flexible!

Edit: start time 8:30am
The start point is a small parking lot at the east end of the Alta Trail. It's on the south side of the San Juan Road about 0.6 miles from the gate that is normally closed.
