where Buckeye
the hike     The City of Buckeye’s Skyline Regional Park is a 8,700 acre mountain preserve located in the southern White Tank Mountains. The park features 16 miles of trails for hikers, mountain bikers and equestrians. Entry to the park is free. The preserve features a number of trails of varying lengths and difficulty levels.
    Flowers are in bloom! / Corridor of old Telegraph Poles. We will be hiking the outer perimeter of the trail system. This will give us a nice 4 mile loop, ascending and descending some ridges on the eastern portion, with stops at viewpoints and nice vistas, and enjoyment of an easy desert walk on the west side of the preserve. Rated a "C" hike because of length and moderate elevationC changes. Future plans for the trail system include an eventual connection to Maricopa County’s White Tank Mountain Regional Park.
