[C] Bug Spring Trail Number 1 -- CANCELED

Bug Spring Trail No.1. Rating: C. Pace: Moderate [125, 07:30 AM, $9]. From the Lower Bug Spring Trailhead (a quarter mile up the Catalina Highway from Hirabayashi Campground), the hike proceeds southeast along a narrow ribbon of trail carved into the granite hillside. After an uphill set of switchbacks, the terrain mellows out with outstanding vistas and views of granite sculptures. The trail dives down the north side of the ridge into a heavily forested drainage. Upward to the highpoint of the trail, you can see a few big madrone trees and views of the Sierrita Mountains, Baboquivari and the mighty Rincons. Turnaround will happen when we reach 3.5 miles from our start. Return is via the same trail. Hike 7.0 miles; trailhead elevation 5000 feet;  accumulated gain 1400 feet; RTD 94 miles.
