This early walk is now hosted by Marianne Milczarek. She can only host 1st and 3rd Sundays. Please sign up at the latest by 8PM the night before so that Marianne can check to see who to expect the next morning. Many thanks and happy walking.
This is approximately a 4-mile hike. We will start at Chase Bank and walk over to the walking/bike trail and follow it until we hit Innovation Parkway and Tangerine. At that point we will start the gradual ascent up Innovation Parkway. This grade is approximately a 10-30% varying grade by my eyeball. At Roche Ventana, we will cut through the property to see their sculpture garden, do an internal loop on-property back along the fire road and then exit onto Innovation Parkway where we continue up hill. At Rancho Vistoso we will cross the street and start our descent trip back to cars at Chase Bank.
This is approximately a 1.45-hour trip in the early morning and for some, shorter. For those who want to walk it faster they can go on ahead. Sometimes we meet at Panera at First and Oracle for a morning coffee/pastry and a social cool down.
Please note: This is a self-paced walk. The group usually sticks together. If there is no one signed up by 8PM the night before when RSVP closes, the meetup is cancelled,
This walk is also on the Oro Valley Outdoor Fun Meetup
