Climber Or Backpacker. Light Holds Up Over His Head. Standing On Mountain Peak. Man With Flashlight

National Trails Day Night Hike. Now that it’s getting so hot daytime is basically just for hiding inside, the Town of Oro Valley is celebrating National Trails Day with a family-friendly “flashlight hike.” The event will take place at Catalina State Park during the evening, hiking to Dripping Springs along the Sutherland trail. Arrive at Catalina State Park by 6:45 p.m. on Saturday, June 5, because boots will be on the trails at 7 p.m. This is a family friendly hike for individuals 8 years and up. Pre-registration is required at This is also the first activity for Oro Valley Men’s Health month. Water and a flashlight are required.


Hacienda Del Sol Pop Up Drive Through Sculpture Show. It’s exciting to be re-entering a time in our lives when we can attend events where we actually leave our cars, because it’s safe to be near other people. But it’s unfortunate that we are also re-entering a time in our lives (summer) where we’d really rather not leave our air-conditioned cars. That makes this art display at Hacienda Del Sol a perfect fit for our lives right now. Just drive through the front entrance of the resort and follow the signage to see a gorgeous array of featured art displays—all against a background of lovely desert scenery. On display through Sunday, June 13. Hacienda Del Sol Guest Ranch Resort, 5501 N. Hacienda Del Sol Road. Free.
