Sabino Canyon Friday Hike   3 comments

Up until the day before the Hutch’s Pool hike,

Hutches Pool-72

He wasn’t sure he was going to do this SCVN Friday Hike.
It had been two years since he last hiked to Hutch’s Pool,
a combined eight miles up and back.

Hutches Pool-2-72
This eight-mile hike usually starts at Stop 9 on the Shuttle route,
So hiking would provide his first opportunity to ride the new all-electric Suttle.

Here the Sabino Canyon Trail intersects with the Phoneline Trail.

The Sabino Canyon Trail winds along the east canyon ridge before

Although it was a great day for a hike to Hutch’s Pool, he began to fall behind the hiking group.

Hutches Pool-7-72
Frustrated by reoccurring joint issues, he decided to turn his back on the upper canyon,
starting the hike back to Shuttle Stop 9, then walking the remaining four miles on the Shuttle Road back to the Visitors Center. 

Hutches Pool-6-72
In the end, he still did a combined hike/walk over eight miles on a beautiful sunny day in the Santa Catalina Mountains.

  3. Joints and rocky trails (ubiquitous in our Catalinas) have a love-hate relationship!
    Great photos, nonetheless.
