Bug Spring Trail

March 13, 2012

When a friend needed help, we canceled our backpacking trip to Reavis Ranch (again!). But we still managed a Sunday morning hike along Bug Spring Trail. Constructed in 2006, this new trail includes wonderfully varied terrain, from dense forest to high desert grassland. We were joined by Mike Y., a new member of Tucson Backpackers. Like us, Mike is a "born again backpacker", and this hike gave him a chance to try out his equipment. For me and Dennis, it was a great prelude to a full calendar of spring backpacking trips!
