Have you ever wanted to get to the peak of Picacho but didn’t want to do it alone? Join our local volunteer Charles! He will guide you and a group of hikers up to the peak via our Hunter or Sunset trails. Learn more about the mountain, the surrounding land, and even some of the native plants. While taking consistent breaks, you will make your climb to the peak. If the peak isn’t for you and you want something less strenuous, don’t fret! Join Charles for his more beginner-friendly Calloway hike! A nice short hike that has a beautiful view. Sign up at our visitor center or give us a call! Spaces are limited.
