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. Colleen will be hosting this Meetup and plans on going to the dried up cow pond, 4 miles round trip (1300 ft elevation gain). Hike time for 4 miles should take average hikers approximately 2.5 hours.
If you would like to do more hiking, it's another mile to a nice saddle (6 miles round trip, 2000 ft elevation gain, 3.5 hours) or another 2.5 miles to the top (9 miles round trip, 2700 ft elevation gain, 6 hours).
Agua Caliente Trailhead: From Tanque Verde Rd go east until N Soldier Trail. Turn left onto N Soldier Trail 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.
