What: Yetman Trail, from Gates Pass to Camino de Oeste
When: Wednesday, March 6
Where: Meet at the Camino de Oueste trail head at 8:00am.
Stats: About 6 miles, minimal elevation change - low intermediate
Let's do a car shuttle hike in Tucson Mountain Park: the full length of the Yetman Trail from the Gates Pass trailhead (G3) to the Camino de Oeste trailhead. This is a pretty easy hike with not much elevation gain. It is 6 miles though, so you need to be able to hike the desert for 2 - 3 hours.
We'll meet at the Camino de Oeste trail head and carpool over to the Gates Pass trail head (G3) then hike back to the cars and drive over to retrieve the cars from the Gates Pass trail head.
Directions: Take Speedway west from I10 for 4.6 miles, turn left (south) onto Camino de Oeste where Speedway becomes Gates Pass Rd. Follow Camino de Oeste about half a mile to the dead end with the parking area. The last few hundred feet are not paved.
