Please wear adequate footwear and bring trail snacks and plenty of water for you and your dog. Elizabeth will be hosting this hike. This is a a difficult loop hike on the Upper Javalina, Wild Mustang and Wild Burro Trails: approximately 8 miles in length and 1700 ft elevation change. We will meet at the Wild Burro Trailhead. Hike time should be around 4.5 hours for experienced hikers.

Wild Burro Trailhead: From W Tangerine Rd go north on N Dove Mountain Blvd. Take the first right right at the traffic circle onto N Secret Springs Drive. Stop at the Ritz-Carlton Dove Mountain gate and tell them you are hiking, continue to the trailhead on your right. Please plan on arriving 10-15 minutes early so we can start on time.

    Hi Jen! Good to know (I'll be in a silver sedan). I've been on hikes before and my dog is friendly but if anyone could give me a heads-up if they have an unneutered male- that would be great. I do have a male and there seems to commonly be tension between nuetered/unuetered males and I'd just like to be aware. Thanks so much! (Hope this doesn't alarm anyone!)

    Oops! I want so much to go, but my sweet 1 yo Ella has a cough tonight. She's up to date w vaccinations etc., but I don't want to risk either exposing other dogs or stressing her if she's ill. I'm begging off, with regrets.

    I may not do the whole 8 miles, but count me in for a heroic effort!

    The parking area is small, anyone w/ a dog will likely be hiking w/us. I have yet to see a male dog who was not neutered on the numerous hikes I have done w/ the group.
