Day 1
Depart Phoenix 9AM

We’ll pick up you and your fellow adventurers in Phoenix at 9AM. Our first stop takes us to the Verde Valley, which was once thriving with 6,000+ Native Americans of the Sinagua Culture. We’ll explore two major pueblo sites: Montezuma’s Castle, a pristine example of a cliff dwelling, and Tuzigoot National Monument where we will take a self guided trail through a 110 room pueblo. We’ll settle in at nearby Dead Horse Ranch State Park which will serve as our base camp for the next few days.

Day 2
Walnut Canyon, Sunset Crater and Wupatki

We’ll head north today to explore Walnut Canyon, Sunset Crater and Wupatki. Explore the Island and Rim trails which will lead you past 700 year old ruins from the Sinagua people in Walnut Canyon. Next, explore Sunset Crater where you’ll have a chance to ascend a cinder cone on the Lenox Crater Trail. Last, we’ll explore Wupatki and Lomaki Pueblos at Wupatki. Discover the variety of peoples that passed through here and the importance of its location as a major trading outpost. We’ll eat dinner out before returning to our campsite again at Dead Horse Ranch State Park.

Day 3
Red Rock State Park and Sedona

We’ll start our day at Red Rock State Park. Explore the exhibits at the Miller Visiter Center or hike numerous trails through the lush riparian eco system with beautiful red rock vistas. In the afternoon we’ll explore the unique town of Sedona which is full of galleries, unique shops and western fun! We’ll drive to camp at our next destination, Lost Dutchman State Park.

Day 4
Lost Dutchman State Park and Ghost Town

Hike right from our campground on the Treasure Loop Trail or Jacob’s Crosscut Trail at the base of the beautiful Superstition Mountains. In the afternoon we’ll visit Goldfield Ghost Town complete with a saloon, museum, mine tours and of course ice scream and souvenirs! We’ll end the day at Catalina State Park.

Day 5
Saguaro National Park

Today we will explore the Tucson District of Saguaro National Park. Cholla, saguaro, prickly pear, and ocotillo, this park is filled with an abundance of cacti and succulents! This park displays the true beauty of the Sonoran Desert. Tonight we’ll camp at Kartchner Cave State Park.

Day 6
Kartchner Cave State Park

Today we’ll go under ground! Discovered in 1974, Kartchner Caves became public knowledge in 1988 when it became a state park. We’ll see stalactites and stalagmites that have been growing for tens of thousands of years on guided, underground tours. We’ll see such formations as shields, totems, helictites, and rimstone dams and the world’s largest soda straw stalactite!
