ASPEN / MARSHALL GULCH - Mt. Lemmon, east of Tucson
Saturday, July 28th
Leader: Rich Flammang ([masked])
Length: 5.1 miles loop
MEET in I-HOP rear parking lot, NW corner of Ray Rd. and I-10, 6:30 AM
Elev. Change: 1,000’
The loop formed by these two trails is one of the most heavily used upper elevation routes into the Pusch Ridge Wilderness. This moderate hike leads through an area of diverse habitats that include excellent examples of Canadian Zone riparian areas and ponderosa pine forests. Sights along this view-rich trail include the bare granite walls of the uppermost reaches of Sabino Canyon, through which the first half mile or so of the Aspen Trail passes. After taking in the wide angle overlooks at Lunch Ledge and Marshall Saddle, both of which include overlooks of the Wilderness of Rock area, towering Lemmon Rock, and Romero Pass, we will take the Marshall Gulch Trail back to our starting point. Bring raingear and lunch.
For those interested, we will be stopping for refreshments in Summerhaven afterwards.
