About this event

Description

This is a moderately difficult 7 mile hike in the Agua Fria National Monument. There are no facilities or formal trails. Participants must be capable of some moderate scrambling over rocks. The Monument contains significant prehistoric sites. On this hike we will see an amazing wall filled with rock art and then hike over informal trails to the Baby Canyon ruin. The ruin is perched on the edge of a canyon with sweeping views. Abundant rock art is found on rocks surrounding it. Depending on weather, there may be some ankle deep water crossings. One hour drive with mid-afternoon return. Bring 2-3 liters of water and snacks or lunch. Wear sturdy boots. Hiking poles recommended.

Meet at the Fountain Hills Library to carpool. Please leave your pets at home for this hike.
