Welcome to the 2016-2017 Hike Season

The PebbleCreek Hiking Club has been established to provide PebbleCreek residents with the opportunity to enjoy recreational hiking in an organized, safe and social environment.

Eight hikes are conducted each week for multiple levels of ability. The least strenuous hikes are "D" level, held on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Most hikers will fall in the "C" group, and three hikes per week are held at this level, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. More strenuous and lengthy hikes - "B" level and an occasional "A" level - are held on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays. See our Ratings page for full description of the various levels. We truly have events for EVERY caliber of hiker!

New for this season, we have added "D" level hikes on Tuesdays, as well as Thursdays. These hikes are only 3 to 4 miles in length, with an elevation change of less than 500 feet - geared to those hikers who wish to participate but at a less strenuous level.

Membership dues are now $10.00 per member. Each member must submit a new registration form along with their dues payment. This is an annual requirement. Checks should be made payable to: PCHC.   Dues may be paid at the club's monthly meetings.  They also may be sent to:  Sandy Mednick, PCHC Treasurer, 2377 N. 165th Dr., Goodyear, AZ 85395

For PROSPECTIVE members
Completion of a walk and an orientation hike are required prior to becoming members.  See Introductory Hikes for more information.  Once completed, new members need to submit their registration form and dues.  For more information on the club's membership requirements, please contact Pete Williams, PCHC President, at 623-444-8052.
