We start on the Marshall Gulch Trail, shortly connecting with the beautiful Wilderness of Rocks Trail, where amazing large granite boulders, water carved canyons and Hoodoos abound. We'll have panoramic views of Tucson, Mt. Lemmon and Sabino Canyon. Once we connect with the high country Mt. Lemmon Trail, it's a 5 mile uphill climb to the summit. Bring your lungs! We'll hike to 9,100 ft., then connect with the Aspen Trail that returns us to the Marshall Gulch Trail and we're on our way home. Email either hike leader if you’re interested at least two days before the hike. If there’s sufficient interest in this great hike, it’s on unless there are possible closures due to fire or storms. There is a $5 per vehicle park entry fee, but a National Park Pass will suffice. Cost to non-members is $5.
