04/09/17 Moonlight Hike
This 8-mile trek follows the Kings Canyon Trail to the top of Wasson Peak through the Tucson Mountains in Saguaro National Park. Traveling by moonlight will provide an interesting perspective of the desert as the trail winds through both desert scrub and desert grassland. The hike from the saddle to the top of Wasson peak offers unique views of the Tucson city lights to the East and dark, sprawling desert to the West. Quiet hikers may hear the nocturnal song of the coyote or sight a tarantula on an evening hunt. Sturdy footwear is required.
