Donna's Belated Birthday Bushwack up Bushmaster Peak

Come join us for Donna's Birthday Bushwack to Bushmaster Peak in the Tucson Mountains.

Bushmaster Peak is the mountain summit north of Gates Pass that rises to 4088 feet above sea level. It is named after a World War II unit that saw action in the mountains of northern Italy.

While it's a short hike, it is on a marginal trail with lots of scrambling, pricker things, and elevation gain. It will be about 1700' of elevation gain and 5 miles round trip.

Afterward, we can check out the new Thunder Canyon Brewery downtown.

Bring water and snacks and party noise makers if you have them.

Hike at your own risk.

    Oh, and that's the second time on a Donna Birthday bushwack that a member has been rattled at. The other time was our first b'day hike back in 2009 when Donna got rattled at. That's how Rattlesnake Ridge got it's name.

    Thanks to everyone who attended. Always a great hike with plenty of teddy bear cholla to greet us on the trail. Nice of the rattlesnake, (with party rattle), to show up for this hike as well.

    Had a great time today! I left a hefty donation of blood on the trail. It just wouldn't be hiking if I didn't!

    I live just off of Ajo can I meet you at the TH (which one) and what time should I get there?

      The parking lot at the top of the pass. It's the only one at the top. If you go over and start down, you've gone to far. Why 11:20? We are meeting at safeway at 10:00. It's only a 15 minute ride or so to the top.

    How long do your hikes generally last? Do you do any morning hikes in the Foothills areas such as Finger Rock or Pima Canyon?

    March 8, 2013

    • Vagabond J.

      They can last just a couple of hours or all day. Some organizers do.
