hiking

From local adventures in Saguaro National Park and Coronado National Forest to exploring Tonto National Forest, we have something for every skill level and interest. All trips are guided by Outdoor Rec staff and include transportation both to and from Outdoor Rec, equipment, and meals in the field (night hikes do not have a meal but include a light snack)

Need an excuse to escape to the mountains? Come join us on a day hike on Mount Lemmon during the perfect time of year. The Butterfly Loop trail is a 8.5 mile loop at the top of Lemmon that we'll be hiking over the course of the day, with breaks for snacks and lunch. Enjoy the beautiful views of the mountain and Tucson's cityscape.

March is still summer in Tucson, but at well above 8,000 Feet (2,400 meters) in elevation, Incinerator Ridge on Mt Lemmon will be a refreshing escape from the valley’s heat. Enjoy the cool breezes, the shade of the trees, and excellent views and photo spots from several high vantage points, all while getting a good workout hiking. This hike will be around 8 miles, with a break for lunch. All transportation, instruction, and lunch for this hike are included.
