Desert Hiking in "El Tular"

Departure: 7:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Tour runs daily year round, except for Mondays and Wednesdays during January, February, and March.

Desert HikingDescription: The Canyon of El Tular hike takes you through two ecosystems - desert mountains and the flamboyant arroyo (seasonal river bed) vegetation. The watershed of this area has nourished medicinal plants and old cactae, which tell the local history. The geology and hydrology of these hills has produced fertile soil that feeds into the arroyo, which you will meander through. This desert exploration is approximately 2 hours round trip.Description: The Canyon of El Tular hike takes you through two ecosystems - desert mountains and the flamboyant arroyo (seasonal river bed) vegetation.
