Whether you are a novice hiker or an experienced trekker, this group provides the chance to explore the biodiverse landscapes of Southern Arizona while forming new friendships along the way.

Testimonial from Roberta Scott

“I began my hikes with the Desert Trekkers in the Fall/Winter of 2021. I wanted so much to hike, and I was taught ‘never hike alone.’ My adventures with Trekkers have exposed me to so many places in Arizona, many of which I would have never known. The beauty, the challenges, the laughs, and all of the adventures are my best memories of Arizona, and more to come! My new Trekker friends are just wonderful!” says Roberta Scott.

Destination Highlights

We offer regularly scheduled hikes of varying difficulty from October through April. Hike days are Fridays, and meet times are seasonal. The October start time is 7:30 a.m. We warm up the fall season with moderate hikes. This past season, Trekkers explored the exceptional and varied trails in Madera Canyon, Tucson Mountain Park, Saguaro National Park, Picacho Peak State Park, Sabino Canyon Recreation Area, as well as many other biodiverse areas. Occasionally, Trekkers organize overnight trips. In the past, we have visited and hiked in the Chiricahua National Monument, Sedona, Prescott, the White Mountains northeast of Phoenix, and wildlife refuges.
