Arizona Optimistic Trekkers

Join the Arizona  Optimistic Trekkers on Friday morning October 13 at 11:00 AM in Yuma for our trek on the West Wetlands Path along the Colorado River. It is a multi-use trail that is a level 2 – 3 hike and is close to the hotel for the conference. Here is a link to a map showing the trail and others around it: http://www.yumaheritage.com/docs.  Click on/BikewaysMap2015.pdf.This should be a fun hike and afterward have lunch as a group. We will determine the place for lunch later. Watch for emails with details as they develop. This should be a fun adventure and some very scenic views along the way.
