Hittin' the Trails 4 You: Next Saturday's BEYOND hiking events

TUCSON - Closing in on a big hiking day across Pima County next weekend, serving to honor the victims of the January 8th shootings.

"BEYOND" is a community-wide event taking place Saturday, January 11th. The event was started by the family of Gabe Zimmerman. Gabe tragically lost his life 3 years ago on January 8th and he was known to be an avid outdoorsman.

Among some of the slated hikes next Saturday is a chance to hike the Gabe Zimmerman Trail on the southeast side. Educational activities for kids will be set up at the trailhead.

Catalina State Park has a twin billing of hikes starting at 8:30 AM. Hikers can choose between the 3 mile Canyon Loop Trail or the 6.6 mile hike to the Romero Pools.

The town of Marana hosts a 3 mile loop hike on the Lower Javelina Trail. This hike starts at 8 AM at the Wild Burro Trailhead near the Ritz-Carlton Dove Mountain.
