Hiking The Aspen Draw, Mt. Lemmon Trail And The Meadow Trail   5 comments

SCVN Friday Hike on Mt. Lemmon — Images by kenne (Click on any of the images to see slide show.)

6b41d7e0b974f08ab70e4e520531266fYesterday’s SCVN Friday Hike started at the Ski Valley parking lot where we took the Aspen Draw trail up to the top of the ski runs, then the Mt. Lemmon trail, looping back on the Meadow Trail. Combining these three trails gave us a six-mile hike with an elevation change of 1,200 feet. The hike included a stop of the Lemmon Rock Lookout.

The weather was great, so I was able to get a lot of photos, which I will be sharing, starting with the previous post and some others after this posting.

The SCVN summer hikes on Mt. Lemmon will conclude after the two remaining hikes (August 23 & 30). The SCVN lead hikes are part of our Public Interpretation program, which includes Walks, Hikes, and Demos, designed to help participants learn about and experience the wonders of Sabino Canyon, the Santa Catalina Mountains, and the Sonoran Desert.

  1. looks like lots of fun and yes let the forest be with us all


  2. Looks like a great hike. Do you stay overnight in the area when doing a series of hikes?


    • Most of our summer hikes are in the Santa Catalina Mountains, 45 minutes away. There are plenty of campgrounds for longer stays if people desire.


  3. Reblogged this on Becoming is Superior to Being and commented:

    This is an SCVN hike I will be leading Friday, July 14, 2017, if the Catalina Highways is again opened. The highway up to Mt. Lemmon has been closed since July 2nd because of the Burro Fire in the eastern Catalina’s. We are all hoping the fire, which has already burned over 21,000 acres, will soon be under control, but the conditions remain threatening. Meanwhile, I thought I would share a posting on this hike on the beautiful Mt. Lemmon from August 13, 2013. — kenne
