Here at Palm Creek RV Resort they have a club for just about everything you can think of. I love the Friday Hike Club. Today I took the Shorter Hike – Javelina Loop Trail with a side trip on the Wild Burrow Trail to the Old Stone line shack site for lunch. The total distance was 5 miles with an elevation gain of 130 feet ( about 4 times) The hike is rated as a C. The other choice was the longer Hike of 7.1 miles 1065’ elev. gain rated as a A-.
The trail head is a few miles north and east of Tucson. The spring flowers at the trail head.
This is the group on the longer hike.
Ocotillo is in bloom as well.
Even the saguaro can have a hard life.
We leave Casa Grande at 8AM and are back in Casa Grande by 2 PM.
