Come out and hike in a remote area in the McDowell's, the Tom's Thumb Trail! The path runs through some of the most spectacular areas in the valley. The trail goes straight up about 1,000 feet over the course of the first mile and a half, so it's for hardy fit mountain
goats! It's one of my favorite hikes in the Valley!
***Bring plenty of water (minimum of 3liters), your sturdy hiking boots, food/snacks for the trail, camera, hat and sunscreen.
***YOU are responsible for your own personal safety and that WE do not assume any responsibility or liability for you or your stuff.
