Evening hike at South Mountain

 

Group,

Let's get out and do some South Mountain trails again and get some exercise.  Let's take the East loop around and pick up the Javalina trail.  From there we can jump over to Desert Classic and make our way back to the parking lot.  This should be a fun 5 mile loop and we normally finish in about 2 hours.

Here are directions to the parking lot.  Follow them to the letter and be on time.  The hikes start promptly.

 

1. Take I-10 to Elliot Rd, and go west
2. Take a right onto 48th St and drive about 1 mile
3. A couple of streets after Piedmont, the road will start to bend way to the right
4. THIS is where you'll want to turn left onto a small street (S 48th St), if you reach Guadalupe, you've gone too far!
5. Almost immediately, you'll reach Pima Canyon Rd (on the left), where you'll see a small guard shack.
6. Drive down Pima Canyon Rd to the end of the parking lot, we'll be at the north shelter.

Let's hike!

Chris

    Four of us hiked and enjoyed this route last night. 'MapMyHike' recorded it as 6.5 miles, we completed it in 2 hours 15 minutes with a few brief pauses to enjoy the views and drink some water. See you next week!

    Hi Guys, I know the trails fairly well, as I hike this area two or three times a week. I'm not the fastest... but steady paced. So.... I will be at the parking lot just before 6:30pm on the 7th for those who want to do the hike. See you there! As we will be hiking in the dark, I do use a headlight, and would urge all who come to bring a headlight or flashlight
