"AZR", Phoenix, Sunday Morning, January 24, 1937
Three hikes into the Hidden Valley area of Phoenix Mountain park will be held today under auspices of the city parks department.
The starting point will be at the end of the graded road in Pima canyon, reached by driving to Yaqui Town, 12 miles southeast of Phoenix, thence a mile southwest and thence two miles west.
The first hike will start at 11 a. m., the second at 1 p. m. and the third at 3 p. m.
Leaving their automobiles in Pima canyon, those participating will be taken on a four-mile itinerary covering some of the most picturesque and interesting regions in the 14,000-acre park.
The unusual spectacle of snow beds lying on the higher parts of the South mountains and in the shaded canyons will add extra interest.
The hikes will be led by Frank Mitalsky, experienced guide and archeologist. Planned especially for the entertainment of winter visitors, they will be open to the public without charge.
