Ventana Canyon Trailhead
Let's get out for a peaceful and beautiful hike on MLK Day. Hopefully, we will find water in the wash. The weather should be perfect for this hike which is a 1,300 foot climb and 5 miles round trip. We'll hike at a moderate pace, and have a snack at the pools. We should return about 1200. Please wear proper hiking attire. Also, bring at least 2 liters of water and snacks. No bathroom at trailhead.
Please remember as always: HIKING IS AT YOUR OWN RISK. There is no lead or sweep. At times you may be hiking alone, if your pace is different from others in the group.
