Please wear adequate footwear and bring trail snacks and plenty of water for you and your dog. Elizabeth will be hosting this Meetup. This will be a moderate hike: approximately 7 miles total (out and back) with a cumulative elevation gain of 1100 feet (most of which comes on the return). Hike time for 7 miles should take average hikers approximately 3.5 hours.
A description of the hike from Bill, a previous host: "After topping Marshall Saddle we'll hike down the Wilderness of Rocks Trail to a park-like grove of stately pines. Although we will not be venturing as far as Lemmon Pools, we should be able to find a good swimming hole for the dogs near one of the Lemmon Creek crossings."
We will meet at Marshall Gulch Picnic Area past Summerhaven (approximately 26 miles after you begin climbing on Mt Lemmon Hwy). Please plan on arriving 10-15 minutes early so we can start on time.
