June Art Hike on Mt Lemmon, AZ

Sunday, June 23 at 8:45 a.m. / Sunset Trailhead

We'll meet at 8:45am at the Sunset Trailhead, together we'll hike the Sunset Trail for 0.5 mile before stopping to paint for an hour. Stephanie will provide some instruction on how to capture the scenery with your medium of choice and then let you explore your creativity on your own. We'll hike back the way we came.The well marked trail takes you under ponderosa pines, gambel oaks and aspens. The trail has some loose rocks in places. If you've never visited Mount Lemmon before this is a great intro hike to see what the Arizona Sky Islands have to offer.

Dogs are allowed on this trail if on a leash.
