Man of the Mountain Hike - San Tan - Wet N Wild Program
San Tan Mountain Regional Park
This program is part of the “County Parks are getting Wet ‘n’ Wild this summer” series and we will be giving away a family-four pack of Wet ‘n’ Wild Water Park Tickets at the end of the program. Imagine living underneath the shelter of a Palo Verde tree as you mine for gold in the heat of the desert. While this may not be the typical lifestyle many of us would choose, learn about the enchanting true story of a man that did just that and the remarkable impact he had on those he came in contact with. Join our Interpretive Ranger for this awe-inspiring 2-mile voyage along the Goldmine Trail to uncover the mysterious life of the Man of the Mountain and to find out who is buried in the graves at San Tan Mountain Regional Park.
