Tucson Hikers is an on-line forum and network for hikers, backpackers, and peak baggers who love to explore the sky islands and canyons of the Sonoran Desert. We are more of a hiking network than a hiking club. Members are encouraged to use our message board to plan hikes and share experiences and information about the trails of Tucson and Southern Arizona. Hike reports are welcomed and members may post their digital images in our "Photos" gallery. Those seeking trail partners may propose outings and invite other outdoor enthusiasts to attend. We are an informal group so don't hesitate to ask questions, offer suggestions, and start dialog on our message board. After all, the success of this group depends upon your participation.
Be sure to visit our "Links" library for a wealth of hiking resources including links to over twenty local hiking clubs. "Links" are now located under the "More" tab. See our "Files" section for an indexed Trip Report archive. You can sort Links and Files alphabetically with the "Actions" tab. If you need assistance with membership please email TucsonHikers 'at' Yahoo 'dot' com .
