[C***] Flag, Dome Rock and Extension Trail

This hike has been given *** due to several steep climbs along the route. Be prepared to climb; it will get you breathing heavily and your heart pumping. This hike begins on the Double Crested/Dome Trail from the south end of S Arroyo Way in Unit 21. (We will meet at Mountain View and carpool to the trailhead.) We cross Canada del Oro Wash, and then follow the newly developed route east through a small wash, and along several ridgelines. The route breaks off of the Dome Rock Trail and goes north to the Flag Hill Lookout. After a short break the hike continues east meeting up with the Dome Extension Trail. At the intersection of the Extension Trail the hike progresses north and east along the ridgeline and around to the back side of Dome Rock. After a short break on The Dome we return towards the trailhead. On the return we pass a rare double crested saguaro registered with the Crested Saguaro Society. On top of the Flag Hill Lookout and Dome Rock there are great 360-degree views of Saddlebrooke and Catalina. Hike 5 miles; trailhead elevation 3200 feet; net elevation change 750 feet; accumulated gain 800 feet; RTD 0 miles.
