The 20th anniversary of the Ten Commandment Hike explores the diversity of religions in our community. It is open to all Scouting youth, families and friends, and other groups with their leaders and friends.
The Hike starts at Grace Lutheran Church, 1124 N. 3rd St, Phoenix AZ (SW corner of Moreland St and 3rd St). Park in the lot directly west of the church on East Moreland St. Presentation stops are downtown and around Arizona State Capitol Mall.
We hike as a single group to each stop. We are greeted by a presenter who will briefly discuss a Commandment, their religion and their house of worship. Each presentation concludes with a few questions and answers pertaining to the stop.
Registration begins at 7:30 a.m. and the Hike begins promptly at 8:00 a.m. The Hike fee is $5.00 per person, which includes an event patch. Please register on-line at the links below. Pease, no pets. Advanced registration expedites check-in.
Small children are always welcomed and are free. It is strongly recommended you bring a stroller or wagon to transport them. Our time is divided between sitting and walking.
The lunch stop is before noon. All hikers must provide their own lunch. There are no stores along this route to make purchases. Soft drinks, water and cookies will be served, courtesy of the Interfaith Religious Committee.
All hikers must bring and carry their own water. Water refill stations will be available throughout the hike. Stay hydrated.

Webelos I Den Leader Andrew Thruston, “I can say from experience the 10 commandment hike is really cool if you have ever had questions about different religions or simply enjoy learning about different cultural believes. It is a long day but well worth it.”
