Escape the city at the renowned and mysterious Aravaipa Canyon Wilderness. Come with us into the heart of this unique region as we hike along the Aravaipa Creek. The tall trees of the lush riparian area offer numerous chances to see wildlife. Vincent Pinto, ethnobotanist and wildlife biologist, will lead the expedition and identify and interpret plant and animal life in this forested habitat. Total hike distance is approximately four miles. Although suitable for most hikers, the hike will be over uneven and wet terrain. Transportation from the Garden departs promptly at 5:30 a.m. and returns at 6 p.m. For those self-driving to the program, please arrive at the Aravaipa Canyon trailhead by 7:45 a.m.
