Outings Location Advisories
Outings Locations Advisories (OLA) are posted as a reference for those who are planning Sierra Club
outings. OLA provide information on specific locations regarding the condition, sensitivity of wildlife
and/or endangered plant life, as well as heavy- to overuse of trails, conditions, etc. In some cases Native American permits are required in advance or areas are closed
for a period of rehabilitation. In others, potential users are reminded of Sierra Club policy regarding noise, motorized travel, etc. It is the responsibility of
outings leaders to check Outings Locations Advisories prior to arranging
Sierra Club-sanctioned outings and/or hikes throughout Arizona and before planning similar
activities in other states.
The Inner City Outings Program provides opportunities for people, primarily inner city youth, to experience wilderness and nature in a way that they rarely can in an urban environment. The program partners with non-profit agencies who serve these communities.
We hope that by building a relationship with nature for these special people, we will spark a love for the out-of-doors that will ultimately help to protect these areas for future generations.
This web site, created by Tucson hiker and Sierra Club trip leader Andy
Flach, is a guide to some of the trails around Tucson. The hike descriptions
include directions to the trailhead, pictures, detailed trail directions,
and summary information such as total distance and elevation change.
America's public lands and wilderness need your support, and hands-on teamwork
