655 E Southern Ave, Tempe, AZ
Description: If a little hiking is good, then a lot is better! Join us as we cross the Superstition wilderness again. This time we will be splitting in to two groups and starting at opposite ends. Our hiking adventure will lie between the Tortilla trailhead and the JF Ranch trailhead. Along the way, the vegetation will change as we transition between the Western Supes’ Sonoran scrub and the Eastern Supes’ desert grasslands. This hike is a great way to see a lot of the Superstitions.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
