Skyline Park Hike to Honor Veterans

Post Date:10/16/2018 2:19 pm
Take a short, 3-mile round trip hike on Skyline Park’s Mountain Wash Trail to honor our veterans on Nov. 9 at 10 a.m. 

When you reach the summit, you and the other trailblazers will help post an American Flag to honor all the men and women who’ve served our country over the years.Group of hikers, leader carrying flag

Valley Vista summit is the highest point in the park. All U.S. military veterans are welcome to help carry the flag during the ceremonial trek. It’s the perfect way to thank our veterans for serving our country while also enjoying breathtaking views and the great outdoors. 

Please remember to wear good hiking shoes and bring lots of water and sun protection. The Mountain Wash hiking trail is rated as a “difficult” trail because of the significant increase in elevation over the 3-miles. 
 
The hike is free and open to anyone who’d like to participate. Pre-registration is encouraged, but not required at https://goo.gl/D5wvzJ

Veterans interested in sharing the experience of carrying the flag on the ceremonial hike should contact Buckeye’s Community Services at 623-349-6330 or via email at amelle@buckeyeaz.gov.

Skyline Regional Park is located at 2600 N Watson RD, Buckeye, AZ 85326. For more information call 623-349-6350.
