Let's head up north to Marana for a Black Friday hike in the Tortolita mountains.
Distance: 10.4 miles
Elevation Gain: 1330 feet
Total Time: plan on 4 to 5 hours
Due to the distance, this hike is for experienced hikers only.
This is a fun hike with some really awesome views of the surrounding mountains. We'll hike for a couple of hours and then find a spot for lunch while we enjoy the surrounding scenery.
Directions : From Tangerine, travel north on Dove Mountain Blvd and take a right at the traffic circle at the end of the road toward the Ritz Carlton. Let the Gatekeeper know you will be hiking. He will tell you where the trailhead parking is. Please give yourself plenty of time to get there. The drive up Dove Mountain Blvd is further than most people anticipate.
