Please wear adequate footwear and bring trail snacks and plenty of water for you and your dog. Elizabeth will be hosting this Meetup. The Sunset Trail is a relatively easy out and back hike: 3.2 miles total with 400 ft elevation gain (starting elevation of 7000 ft). Hike time is 1.5 hours for average hikers. For those wanting additional mileage, the Aspen Trail/Marshall Gulch Loop Trail adds 3.7 miles and 1600 ft elevation gain. Hike time for Sunset Trail and Aspen-Marshall Gulch Loop Trail (6.9 mile/2000 ft gain moderate hike) is 3.5-4 hours for average hikers.
We will meet at the Sunset trailhead which is approximately 22 miles after you begin climbing on Mt Lemmon Hwy (located on the left just after the Butterfly trailhead). Please plan on arriving 10-15 minutes early so we can start on time.
