Ventana Trail to Maiden Pools

Would you like to experience the peace and beauty of the Sonoran Desert and get some exercise?  We'll hike Ventana Trail to Maiden Pools.  This is a 5 mile round trip hike with a 1,300 foot elevation gain.  We'll have a snack at the destination.  You need to be in good physical condition to do this hike.  We will be hiking down in the dark and get back by 9PM.  No facilities at the trailhead.  I guarantee you will see animals.  Please bring water, food and a light. [masked] is my cell.  If you are going to come, then please sign up.

    Great introductory hike to the Tucson area. Jim did a great job of helping us avoid rattlesnake bites and other perils of the desert...
