Meet at 8:00 (leave 8:15) at the south end of the Kohl’s parking lot on the NE corner of Arizona Avenue and Willis in Chandler (just south of the Arizona Avenue exit off the SOUTH 202 freeway (San Tan Freeway). 

This hike in the Tucson Mountain Park, which involves a short car shuttle, starts below Gates Pass and finishes at Gates Pass.  We will start at the Camino de Oeste trailhead, passing the ruins of the 1930’s Bowen Ranch.  We will then take a side trail to an overlook of Cat Mountain, before continuing up to Gates Pass and views of Saguaro National Park. 

There is an optional lunch stop at Bud’s favorite Mexican restaurant, Nana’s Kitchen in Marana.
