On Monday, May 20, from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m., there will be a dog-friendly hike starting at the Cholla Day Use Area and following a social trail down to the Crosscut Trail toward First Water Road and back. The hike will be approximately 4 miles round trip and will last two to three hours, allowing for lots of playtime for the dogs. Make the most of this opportunity to get your dog used to hiking and socializing with other dogs while you get some exercise! New dog owners can also have their questions answered on safely hiking with dogs. There is no water along this route, so make sure to bring enough for you and your pet. Don’t forget a 6-foot leash, doggie bags, and a pocket tool if you have one.

 

Location: 6109 N. Apache Trail, Apache Junction. For more information on this event and other Arizona State Parks events, visit AZStateParks.com.
