Arizona Trailblazers Hiking Club
Rio Salado Habitat Day Hike
when Trip Report : October 28, 2017
where Phoenix
the hike     Come join us on an exploratory hike of an urban treasure. Not far from the concrete and glass of downtown Phoenix, an oasis of riparian life awaits us on the Rio Salado. The City of Phoenix lovingly restored the riverbed to its former glory of plant, animal and water life and now 14 miles of trails are there to explore.
    We will start at one of the many trailheads and explore the dirt paths that go for 3.2 miles one way and 3.9 miles in the other, spanning from 19 th Avenue to 28th Street. We may take a little break to visit the Audubon Nature Center along the way. This will be an easier Trailblazer hike, but we will cover 7 miles and visit a place that is under our noses, but that we haven’t yet explored as a group.
    For more information see Mare Czinar’s description.
