Contact the hike leader to RSVP for this hike and for meeting time and location.

Although this is planned as a day trip, overnight lodging is also possible.

This hike starts at the Sabino Canyon Recreation Area in Tucson. Bring plenty of fluids and electrolytes for this hike which will follow Esperero Canyon, cross a ridge to a grove of Arizona Cypress trees and follow a canyon to 15' Bridal Veil Falls at an elevation of 5400'. Speaking from experience, the falls make a great shower!

Afterwards we may enjoy happy hour at nearby spectacular Loews Ventana Canyon Resort which has their own short trail to yet another waterfall.

No dogs are allowed in the Pusch Ridge Wilderness. Bring your boots, hat, plenty of water, snacks or lunch, and sunscreen.

Cost to non-members is $5.
