A moderate 4-mile hike to the second largest landslide in AZ on the east side of East End mountain, including a discussion of the geological history of the area. This 2.5 hour hike is suitable for all hikers. This hike is a 400 ft gain of elevation, it's a fairly short distance to reach the top of the Landslide. . . after that it is pretty level.
Please arrive at the Tom's Thumb trailhead by 7:45 a.m. Maximum 20 people.
If you ever thought Geology was boring this hike will change your mind. You will enjoy this hike every step of the way. Bring your camera and water of course.
