Hello ladies! Happy to host an Official Meetup for July on O'Leary Peak Trail to the Lookout. O'Leary is the 20th highest peak in Arizona. Although some complain its an unused forest road that takes you to the top, the views are worth it! 

We will monitor the conditions leading up to the hike, but fingers crossed this will continued to be open.

Bring snacks/food/and lots of water (more than you think you need).

This hike isn't a long hike, but the incline is pretty steady all the way to the top. Add in the altitude and you have a fun combination!
