CELEBRATE McDOWELL SONORAN MONTH – TAKE A HIKE! by azhttp

Both start at 8 a.m. The Saturday, Oct. 6, hike features the 2.5-mile Ringtail Loop starting at the Lost Dog Trailhead. A free discussion on desert hiking tips begins at 7:30 a.m. in the trailhead’s amphitheater.

The Sunday, Oct. 7, hike starts at the end of Alma School Road, north of Dynamite Boulevard. It’s a 4.2-mile round trip to one of the area’s striking rock formations.

Two half-hour morning programs at the Lost Dog Trailhead amphitheater area also are on tap for the weekend. Both start at 9 a.m. Saturday’s program is a presentation on Cooking With Desert Ingredients and Sunday’s program is on Desert Birds.

The McDowell Sonoran Preserve encompasses about 14,000 acres of pristine desert and mountain land rich in a diverse array of plant and animal life, geological formations, and cultural heritage.
