Hiking with Paws!Hiking with Paws---an easy hike in Catalina State Park.
This trail is an easy beginners trail that takes us about 2.3 miles round trip from the trail head of where we park. Catalina State Park is directly across from the Oro Valley Marketplace on the east side of Oracle. The trails that are highlighted here are well used by many bird watchers, hikers and many people bring the kids for a short hike and you see many dogs on this trail. This is ideal for almost any size dog and is an enjoyable walk. I have taken my 3 dogs on this trail and Nikki, my older dog has arthritis in her hind legs, and she does very well.
Exercise is great for any dog at any age! I am offering this outing for anyone who would like to sign-up. I can take up to 2 dogs at a time, and if you have 3 or 4 that would like to go, I will bring a second person. It is by reservation and dates will be added weekly. If you have one dog, no need to worry, just sign-up, it is possible I may match you up with another single dog. If your dog(s) are social they will enjoy the company of another k9 friend!
This is about a 90 minute outing. About one hour of good hiking and the remainder of travel time, depending upon where you live it may be shorter or longer.
The costs goes up with 3 and 4 dogs, because a second person will be needed, as I will only hike/walk with 2 dogs at a time.
Depending upon your dogs size and how they walk/hike on a leash will also determine how many dogs I can take.
I want this to be an enjoyable experience for your pet. It’s always refreshing to get outdoor air and enjoy a hike for exercise. Your pet will love it!
I will always try to get pictures of your pet(s), so you can see how their outing went.
Call for pricing of 90 minutes of Park time. Cost also depends upon pick-up location and outing requested.
Mt. Lemmon Hike - 1/2 day tripOn this trip we drive up Mt. Lemmon past Summerhaven, set into the back to an area where we park with several trailheads On this trail, we will take Marshall Gulch then cut around to finish on the Aspen Trail back to the parking area/picnic grounds from where we started (take a loop). he trail is approximately 3 1/2 to 4 miles roundtrip. It goes through trees with running water in the shade to nice sunny hiking areas as we move along the trail. This trail is easy to moderate. Stay tuned.... we are adding a different hike! I can’t wait!
This is Ted with his backpack on. He always goes on long hikes with us and he carries his treats and water. He enjoys his hikes and looks forward to the next one. Ted has gone on some intense hikes...he thinks the one highlighted here is easy to moderate and would give it a 2 on on scale of 1 to 5 with 1 being easy and 5 the hardest.
Mt. Lemmon outings start at $60.00 for one dog, 2nd dog is an additional $30.00.
