Leaving the land better than we found it is the only rule of CVL’s Hike Club. Each month, CVL leads employees, customers, friends and family on a day hike. After Sedona’s hike, we’ll finish out our 100 miles in central Arizona at (you guessed it…) the Tom’s Thumb Trailhead!

CVL Hike Club steps onto new trailhead

The long-awaited North Access Trailhead finally opened to Arizona’s climbing and hiking communities – providing new access to the popular Tom’s Thumb area in North Scottsdale.

Scottsdale Mayor WJ “Jim” Lane was accompanied by Tom’s Thumb namesake, Tom Krueser, who opened the trail with a ceremonial carabiner! Notable landmarks are the Tom’s Thumb and the Markus Landslide hiking trails that give new foot access to an area that has long been popular with rock climbers.  Now with bathrooms, interpretive signing and well-marked trails, visitors can now have a shady place to sit and gather either before or after hikes. In addition, 10 horse trailer parking places were added.  The CVL Hike Club made it to the opening and hiked the Markus Landslide trail to commemorate the event.

Raising hope for college

CVL Consultants sponsored a hole at a golf tournament for the Boys Hope, Girls Hope organization. Because of this and other fundraising efforts, 18 students will receive full, four-year tuition scholarships to college.

Boys Hope Girls Hope helps academically capable and motivated children in need meet their full potential and become men and women for others by providing value-centered, family like homes, opportunities and education through college.

The tournament was held Oct. 8 at the Whirlwind Golf Club in Chandler, Ariz.
