Pima Canyon to The Dam

Total Length: 6.4 miles
Highest Elevation: 3750 feet
Lowest Elevation: 2900 feet
Elevation Gain: 850 feet

Let's wander over to the Pima Canyon Dam this Sunday morning.  I haven't done this hike in quite some time.  It's a nice hike with plenty of scenery.  This is a beginner to intermediate hike and  I will be going at a moderate pace.  We will take a snack break at the dam before heading back.  Be aware that we can encounter venomous creatures and stinging insects on this trail.

A Sierra Club trail description can be found HERE.

I recommend:
- sun protection
- 2-3 liters of water
- snack

Directions to Trailhead: From Sabino Canyon: west on Skyline past the point where it becomes Ina. About 0.75 miles after the road becomes Ina, turn right on Christie. There is a traffic light here, and there should be a sign saying the Pima Canyon Trailhead is to the right. Go about a mile north on Christie until it ends at a T-intersection with Magee. There is a sign here saying the Pima Canyon Trailhead is to the right. Turn right on Magee and enter the parking lot for the Pima Canyon trailhead.

    I'll give it 5 stars; I had fun! Thanks Don, for organizing! I don't know if our "plus one's" today are THMG members, so I couldn't tag them in the group photo. Feel free to add any omissions!

    I limited the group size to 10 because of the size of the parking lot and because this is a popular trail. It's impossible to know just how quickly the parking lot will fill up. If you are on the attending list and cannot attend, please change your RSVP so that someone from the waiting list can go. Given how popular this hike seems to be, I'll have to consider scheduling it again in the near future.

      Britton, for this hike, I'm going to leave it at 10. But given the number of people on the waiting list, I can see that I will need to post this hike again.
