BEYOND Hike - November 2023


Pontatoc Trail, Catalina Mountains


Hike Description Level 3

  • Mileage- 3-4 (group depending)
  • Hike Description- Ready to take it to the next level? Located in the beautiful foothills of the Santa Catalina Mountains, this hike goes to an incredible ridge that offers stunning views of Tucson with mesmerizing topography for those interested. It will be harder than most of our hikes with some rocky step-up and down areas and steeper climbs. If you have done our level two hikes and feel like you are ready for a challenge, this hike might be for you. If balancing, the level one, or two hikes are already challenging, it is best to wait for the next hike.
  • Note- We are starting at the Finger Rock trailhead, but doing a different trail that is not as steep as Finger Rock. This hike is shorter in mileage for our level threes, but the climbs and terrain are what make it the level that it is.
