As I do most weeks, I spent last Friday morning hiking one of Marana’s many trails. This time, it was the two-hour trek up
from the base to the ridge. For those of you who don’t know, Sombrero Peak
is located right behind Continental Reserve. Sombrero Peak
It’s a nice hike that gets the blood flowing. You can go all the way to the top if you have the time. Either way, the views are impressive.
Marana is blessed to have several great hiking spots, many of which are in the
. My best advice for enjoying
those trails is to get an early start, take plenty of water and avoid hiking
alone. If you must go by yourself, make sure to take your cell phone in case
you get into an emergency situation. Tortolita Mountains
Heat won’t be a problem this Saturday when the Town teams with
to hold a night hike in the Tortolitas. The 5-mile hike is held to celebrate
National Trails Day and is free of charge. The hike starts at 7 p.m., so we ask
that anyone who wants to come along meet in the Wild Burro Trailhead parking
lot by 6:45. The trailhead is located on the grounds of the Ritz-Carlton, Oro Valley .
I have made this hike many times and can guarantee anyone who comes along will
have a fantastic time. Dove Mountain
See you on the trails.
