Passage 13 – Oracle

January 17, 2018

Nineteen intrepid SaddleBrooke hikers braved a chilly morning to improve trails in Oracle State Park. A special effort was made to clear the trails of sticker bushes and obstacles for runners participating in the upcoming Oracle Rumble for the benefit the Arizona National Scenic Trail. Lots of excellent work was accomplished in 3 hours, with one group working an additional half hour. Volunteers were happy to enjoy Janis Rechhemmer’s famous banana bread and other treats after working.

SaddleBrooke hikers are always willing to improve sections of the Oracle Passage of the Arizona National Scenic Trail. On Wednesday, February 21, volunteers will work to clear a scenic re-route away from a trail paralleling a busy road. Volunteers are welcome to join the SaddleBrooke Hiking Club volunteers in this satisfying effort. To participate call or email Elisabeth Wheeler 520-818-1547,, or Ray Peale, 520-818-6285,
