Canyon Loop at Catalina State Park

The Canyon Loop is a pleasant, well maintained 2.3 mile long relatively level walk to start off the day in scenic natural surroundings. We can add the 1 mile long Nature Loop or Birding Trail if there is any interest by the group. Water, sunglasses and a hat are recommended.

Catalina State Park charges $7 per vehicle unless one has an annual state park pass. I do have an annual pass and would have room for two more individuals in our car. Let me know and I'll meet you in the parking area facing Oracle Rd and the mountains in the large parking lot North of Chase Bank by 9:15 am. The bank is located on the right just as you enter Oro Valley Marketplace coming off of Oracle directly across from the entrance to Catalina State Park. I will be driving a blue Volvo station wagon.

    We have room for two more in our car for those who do not have an annual state park pass. It would save you the $7 entrance fee. Just let me know before and you could join us by parking in front of Chase Bank at 9:15 am directly across from the park entrance as mentioned above in the initial description for the hike. You could transfer to our car there. Otherwise if I do not hear from anyone, we can all meet at the end of the park road at the picnic tables between the two parking areas at 9:30 am.

    Look forward to catching everyone on another hike soon. I am recovering from a fairly recent knee surgery and need to build up once again.

    I need to go gently as well, recovering from surgery I had last August. I've been walking the path at the OV Marketplace. Looking forward to the vistas from the Parks trail.

    Dorothy, you should not have any trouble with the hike. It is a good beginner hike.

    October 26, 2013

  • Dorothy F.

    Look forward. Hope this is not too hard hike. I have not hiked for some time but try to walk daily.
