Why Use Hiking Poles?

This message is primarily for those folks that hike out of Fountain Hills and Scottsdale. Adero Canyon is now officially closed to access. It has been used as a short cut for folks trying to save some miles when hiking into the Fountain Hills preserve from either Scottsdale or the Golden Eagle Trailhead. Folks exit or enter at the end of Eagle Ridge going by Copperwind or thru Hidden Hills which is a nice short cut back to the Sunrise Trailhead. The canyon is going to be developed and fences are now being erected. The closure period is likely at least 2 years. By the time, it reopens we will hopefully have a trailhead in place with vehicle access for the Fountain Hills preserve - let's hope its sooner rather than later!
