Please wear adequate footwear and bring trail snacks and plenty of water for you and your dog. This is a moderate out and back hike so mileage will depend on when you turn around. I plan on doing at least 4 miles round trip (1300 ft elevation gain) but if the weather is nice may go the whole way (9 miles round trip and 2700 ft elevation gain). Hike time for 4 miles should take average hikers approximately 2.5 hours, 9 miles approximately 6.5 hours.
Agua Caliente Trailhead: From Tanque Verde Rd go east until Houghton Rd. Turn left onto Houghton Rd and after a short distance turn right onto Fort Lowell Rd. Follow this until nearly the end, into a development where Camino Remuda breaks off to the left. Take this and stay left onto Camino Cantil, continue to the trailhead on your right. Please plan on arriving 10-15 minutes early so we can start on time.
