BEYOND Hike - September 2023



Hike Description Level 1

  • Mileage- 1.5
  • This hike is wheelchair and stroller accessible (Please read more under hike details)!
  • Hike Description- We have a new hike this month in Sweetwater Wetland Park! This area is great for birding and seeing other wildlife- and wetlands! This area is half a water treatment facility, and the other half we will be in is an urban wildlife habitat and outdoor classroom. The trails are well maintained for walking and are about 1/2 in the shade. There is a nice cool breeze from the wetlands. This hike offers green foliage, river path access, and a trail network that is accessible to anyone of any hiking difficulty. There are several lookouts to the wetlands to see the flora and fauna in the water, and opportunities to see other desert animals on the trails. Click HERE for more information.
