Hiking: We are planning three main hikes, Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, with other activities available on Wednesday (see below).

Monday:  Squirrel Springs trail - 14 miles of combined loop trails. We will not do all 14 miles, but figure out a combination for about an 8 mile hike, 1200 ft maximum elevation gain.

Tuesday: East Fork trail:  7 miles one way, 1100 ft. elevation change. We will probably go out about 4 miles and return.

Thursday:  West Fork trail: 7 miles one way, 1200 ft. elevation change. Again, we will go out 4 miles and return.

Other Activities:

On Wednesday, we thought people might like to explore Greer, a lovely small ski town, or see other nearby sites:

Sipe White Mountain Wildlife Area: 28 miles from Greer. There's a visitor's center, and it has 4 easy trails, 2.5 miles being the longest. 

Butterfly Lodge Museum: Downtown Greer

Greer Lakes: There are three small lakes or reservoirs directly across the road from Hoyer campground that are lovely for smaller hikes or for fishing.

We will try to plan a group dinner for Wednesday evening and will have a daily happy hour gathering.

Much information about lodging, hikes, and other activities can be found at:   http://greerarizona.com/todo /

Caveat:  We have been to Greer and hiked  around the small lakes, but have not done any of the proposed three main hikes before.  So, we will be exploring together.  Bob and Cindy will lead the moderate hikes.  We will need a volunteer to lead the slow hikes and someone to lead more strenuous hikes if desired.
