When someone (Paul) posts a great idea for a hike, why not steal the idea? Especially when members are also asking for a weekend version of the hike.
Hutch's Pool is a year round pool that is always deep enough to swim in with a nice beach. This is an out and back hike.
- Round Trip Distance: 7.8 miles
- Elevation Gain: 647 feet
- Accumulated Gain: 1,770 feet
- Avg Round Trip Time: 4 hours (not including tram ride)
We will meet at the Sabino Canyon Visitor (tram ticket booth) center at 8:30 am and take the tram to bus stop 9 and hike 4 miles to Hutch's Pool. If you want, you can choose to walk the tram road or the Phoneline Trail, which will add about another 8 round trip miles. If you do plan to walk then give yourself plenty of time to get to bus stop 9 by 9:25 am. The first tram leaves at 9:00 am and arrives at bus stop 9 at approximately 9:25 am.
The tram tickets are $8 and they only accept CASH. Please try to arrive early so you don't miss getting a ticket for the 9 am tram ride.
Rating: C – C+ Intermediate: There are steep switch backs starting at bus stop 9 to Sabino Canyon Trail Head but from there it is a fairly level hike and easy hiking.
Please state in your RSVP if you intend to walk instead of taking the tram.
No Dogs Please
What to bring:
