Hiker Chicks

Explore trails in the many mountains and parks of this area.  

You can start with beginning hikes you might want to try and move up to longer trails with steeper climbs.  You can build up to exercise pace and more strenuous hikes for those with more experience. 


 Join local birding enthusiasts for a walk in one of Tucson’s many parks and get a glimpse of some of the hundreds of species of birds that live in or pass through Tucson regularly.  Your leader will explain why each park attracts particular species, and you will learn to identify them by sight and sound.”
