The Arizona Mountaineering Club (AMC) will be cleaning up the climber access route up to, in and around Hog Heaven in the McDowell Sonoran Preserve. Volunteers will meet at the Tom’s Thumb trail head on Saturday, April 15 at 7:00 a.m.

Participants should expect a 45 minute hike to the Hog Heaven area and three hours of physical labor. Bring loppers for cutting brush, work gloves, water, and snack. Wear weather- and work-appropriate clothing.

To get to the trailhead, 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 the trail head.
