Welcome to the 2017-2018 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. Additional hikes on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays are at "C" level; and Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays at "B" level. See our Ratings page for full description of the various levels.

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

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 Dana Thomas, PCHC President, at 907-590-4425

The Hike Meet Location has Changed

We have changed where we sign-in/meet/depart on hikes.  We now sign-in/meet/depart in the area next to the ballroom (where we store the Spots/Med kits/Walkie-Talkies) at Eagles Nest.  You can come through the same main door but go right, down the hall to the Ballroom lobby.
