The Town of Marana is hosting a free guided-hike of the Tortolita Mountains on Nov. 10, beginning at 8 a.m.

The hike begins at the Wild Burro Trailhead, located at the Ritz-Carlton at Dove Mountain, 14810 N. Secret Springs Dr.

Hikers will have the chance to socialize with others while experiencing Marana’s wilderness with different hikes each month. Another hike is scheduled for Dec. 8. Most hikes are between five and eight miles with elevation gains of 300 to 500 feet.

Town staff recommends hikers bring two quarts of water, lunch and snacks, a hat, and sturdy shoes.
