So dust off your hiking boots, spray on some sun block, and get ready for a fun morning out on the trail!

To get there, it may be a little confusing. I hardly remember myself, but look at this map:http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&source=s_d&saddr=W+Baseline+Rd&daddr=E+Pima+Canyon+Rd&hl=en&geocode=FZhP_QEdcWhT-Q%3BFTwU_QEdFT5T-Q&mra=dme&mrcr=0&mrsp=0&sz=15&sll=33.374011,-111.97506&sspn=0.016378,0.038495&ie=UTF8&ll=33.370678,-111.972141&spn=0.016379,0.038495&z=15
In a nutshell, get to 48th street. You can either go North from Elliot, or South from Baseline and snake your way past The Point Hotel. There should be road called Pima Canyon Rd that you turn West on. ** See Map! **
Once on Pima Canyon Rd, follow it down. It'll dead end at the parking lot. Park. ** You can plug this into maps.google.com to see where it's at: from: S 48th St to: 33.362942,-111.98512
