Friday Night Sabino Stroll

  • Aug 15, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • Sabino Canyon Recreation Area

Come join us for our weekly hike and socializing afterward at Risky Business! This is a great hike for new members. We normally walk up the tram road and enjoy the evening views of the canyon. Most folks turn around after 2 miles, but some hardy folks go the entire 7.4 miles to the end of the tram road and back. Everyone walks at a different pace, and so normally we break up into smaller groups as we are walking.  When we get to the 2 mile rock we usually regroup before returning to the visitor center. The group that leaves at 7pm walks a little faster than 2 miles per hour. The group that leaves at 6 walks even faster, nearly 4 miles per hour. Please consider these speeds and your abilities when deciding to join us. If you cannot keep up, be prepared to hike by yourself.

We are hiking in the dark, so please make sure you have a good flashlight. The rattlesnakes are out.   

We'll meet at the ramada (covered patio) in front of the Sabino Canyon Visitor's Center at 7 PM, do a quick round of introductions and start hiking shortly thereafter.

Those wishing to walk the entire road should start with the 6:00 PM group if you intend to join the later starters at Risky Business (Kolb/Sunrise).   Please indicate on your RSVP if you will be joining the 6:00PM group.

Stroll at your own risk. Be prepared for possible rain.

If no host is present at the appointed time (+5 Mins), begin the stroll anyway.

See you there!

    THANK YOU! for the amazing pictures. Wednesday I started driving to Palo Alto CA, and I wound up in New Hampshire Thursday. Long story. Anyway, I'm homesick for AZ and these pics were just the right temp cure. Looks like I missed a particulary gorgeous evening in the Canyon and great company.

    Amazing scenery! The weather was great too. The occasional drizzle was perfect for cooling off on the way up.

    I was hoping I would be feeling healthy enough to do this, but it doesn't look like that is the case :( Have a good hike and I hope to see everyone next week :)

    Beautiful breeze on the way up. The terrific rainbows and lambent blue sky made for a magical evening. Enjoyed meeting the new folks and it is always a pleasure kanoodling with the old. Thanks everyone. It was a blessed time.

    I will be at 7pm group. I live in the East part of Tucson (on Speedway between Kolb and Pantano) and I would gratefully appreciate a ride back into town after the hike (or a ride after heading over to Risky Business). Thanks!

    Going the whole tram road this week, I think, with my full backpack. Last week was a test run. So, starting a bit early this Friday, about 5:30/1700ish.

    Now that I've been once, RB afterwards.
