Annual Seven Falls Thanksgiving Day Hike

Distance: ~8 mi round-trip

Elevation Gain: nominal (about 700 feet)

Difficulty: Intermediate (because of the distance)

Happy Thanksgiving!  Let's work up our appetites by hiking to Seven Falls. Don't know if we'll have any water, but it's always a fun hike and a beautiful area.  We will be hanging out at the pools for a while so expect this hike to take at least 4 hours.

Bring a snack and at least two liters of water.

A parking pass is $5 for the day, or $20 for an annual pass (an extremely good investment).

HIKE AT YOUR OWN RISK.

    OOh , thank you Raj. It was nice talking to you for short, before you took the dirt route to Seven Falls. Perhaps next time when you join us for another adventure. Wow, that currency must be an antique, as things have changed since then, Wonderfully expect to see you next time, so we can talk more about other things as we started that day.

      Hi, I enjoyed talking to you. I forgot to tell you that I enjoyed my short stay in Tehran and I still have Iranian currency.

    Great seeing you again Don and to my hiking friends old and new, it was a great day and great company. This is always an awesome hike, especially with water the running.

    As always Don provided a laid back fun hike. I think he needs to move back to Tucson! Seriously.... great hike and worked up an appetite for my early afternoon Turkey Dinner!

    It would be great to start another group an hour later, Aaron.

      Dina: I live near Country Club if you still need a ride. Or share as it is $5 for each car to park.

      November 28, 2013

      Hi Josh. I didn't think I was going, so I slept in and just read your message. Thank you for your offer. I may ask you the next time. Have a wonderful hike!

    Opps. Operator error on the alarm. Must switch to the 930 group.

      At the Pavilion in the front. Where the Sabino stroll meets. Sounds like people want to meet at 9:30?

    I just gave up my 7:30 spot to join the 9:30 or 10 group.

    November 27, 2013

    • Karla L.

      Hi lisa ill be there at 930 :)

      November 28, 2013

  • Mary R.

    Lisa, Sharon & Karla --
    There's an annual neighborhood area benefit breakfast I'd hoped to visit before hiking. I'll try to be at the pavilion by 9:30, but if I don't make it by then, go ahead without me. It'll be my loss.

    November 27, 2013

    • Sharon P.

      yea, I was going to leave at 10am. My pace is more leisurely. I like to enjoy the views. We can meet at the pavilion/visitor's center

      November 27, 2013

    • Karla L.

      Ok ill be there at 930

      November 28, 2013

  • Ruby K.

    I changed my status to not going so please use the spot

    How about the later group meet at the pavilion in front at 9:30

    November 27, 2013

  • Sharon P.

    I'm on the waiting list and prefer to leave later anyway. (no dinner plans) Anyone interested in leaving at 9 or 10?

    November 23, 2013

    • Mary R.

      Sharon & Lisa -- Are you planning to leave at 10:00 for sure? If so, I'll likely encourage my buddy for another scheduled hike to change plans so we can join you. :-) I should probably ask about your pace too. Where on a scale between conditioning and leisurely?

      November 27, 2013

    • Karla L.

      Hi can i join the 10 am hike? Where are you guys meeting?

      November 27, 2013

  • Vickie B.

    Just checked with the park, there is significant water but not covering the stepping stones. At least that is the case today!

    November 27, 2013

    • Don B

      Vickie, that's great news. Thanks for checking.

    Hi Mary and Sharon,
    How about we meet at 9:30. I may not be able to do the whole hike with you. I have until 11:30.

    November 27, 2013

  • Cary

    I am insanely sick today. JUST NOT FAIR! I will not be able to attend the hike tomorrow as a result:-(

    My family wants to join me so we will go later and open a spot for some one. Have a great hike and a great day !

    November 27, 2013

  • Don B

    Unfortunately I wasn't able to put together a second group. So, if you are on the attending list and can't come, please be sure to remove yourself so that someone from the wait list can go. And Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

    Question: how long does it take round trip, especially if you like to stop and take pictures and enjoy the scenery?

      Thanks, Don. It suddenly occurred to me that I may have to be ready to leave the house around noon to get to my Thanksgiving dinner in Benson. Still waiting to hear from the folks I'm travelling with. Will update my rsvp if necessary.

      Just changed my rsvp, Don. My friends are picking me up between 12 and 12:30, so the hike would be cutting it too close. Hopefully another time. Have a great hike and a great holiday.

      November 25, 2013

    Hate to miss this but have friends in town that want to hike elsewhere.

    November 24, 2013

  • Ve

    I'll give up my spot for someone on the waiting list, no worries.

    November 24, 2013

  • Don B

    We have lots of people on the waiting list. If you are registered to attend, but you have a change in plans, please change your RSVP so that another member can attend. Thanks.

    I'm schedule on the 7:30am hike, but I am not going to be able to make it. I can't figure out how to get my name off the list, hopefully this post will do the trick so someone can take my place. I hope everyone has a great time -- wish I could make it -- I love this hike.

    November 23, 2013

  • Alan C.

    Last minute change in plans, going out of town for the holiday after all. Sorry to miss a great hike, happy to make room for someone else to go. Have fun!

    November 23, 2013

  • Don B

    With the recent rain, I'm expecting the Falls to be awesome. But that also means we might get wet. There are a total of seven water crossings on this hike. I recommend hiking poles for stability when stepping on the rocks and a good sense of humor if you do get wet. :)

    P.S. - I am looking into creating a second hike due to the number of people on the wait list. No promises yet.

    November 23, 2013

  • walter t.

    Might need a boat for the water crossings :O)

    November 23, 2013

    Greetings, Mr. Don!

    Hi everyone! If I make it to the official list, could someone give me a ride? I live close to Country Club and Speedway. Thanks!

    November 22, 2013

  • arlene G.

    Anyone living near Oro valley that would like to carpool????

    November 21, 2013

  • Aaron

    Since there is such a big waiting list, why don't we start another group that leaves an hour later?
