A day hike to the base of one of the most distinctive peaks in Arizona. This trail was constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1934 and climbs steadily to the base of Baboquivari Peak where the “standard” climbing route begins. The trail is easy to follow. Hikers will need to turn around here. Distinctive 7,734-foot Baboquivari Peak is a sacred place to the Tohono O’odham. The peak marks the center of the universe and the home of Elder Brother I’itoi, who taught the Tohono O’odham how to live in the desert. Many birds are attracted to the area, including the rare and unusual thick-billed kingbird, five-striped sparrow, northern beardless-tyrannulet, and zone-tailed hawk. Vegetation varies from saguaro, palo verde, and chaparral communities to oak, walnut, and pinyon at the higher elevations. Permit: Permit required from Tohono O’odham tribe. Payment for the permit can be made to the manager at Baboquivari Park every day except Wednesday and Thursday. On those days, obtain permits from the Baboquivari District Office in Topawa.
