BEYOND Annual Hike - January 2024


Gabe Zimmerman Trailhead - Arizona Trail


Hike Description (Level and level description)

We will have three hikes that go out, a level 1, 2, and 3

  • Level 1 hike- will go about 1 mile down to the stream and back with some moderate hills
  • Level 2 hike- will go about 3 miles down to the
    stream and continue on then head back with some moderate hills and stream crossings
  • Level 3 hike- will go along the ridge, cut down, and come back via the stream for a total of about 5 miles. This hike will move fast, have stream crossings, and will be more technical.

All terrain will be typical Sonoran landscape of rocks and cacti
