The author has hiked all of the trails on this site. When ideas for the hikes were obtained from other hiking books the source is referenced. I have done my best to provide accurate hike descriptions, however, I may have been day dreaming at a critical trail junction or you may not be able to follow road signs, let alone a faint trail. Some of these hikes are quite difficult & I bear no responsibility as to your fate should you choose to follow one of these trips. Future hikes will be posted to this site as new areas are explored.

No reference is given for the difficulty of the hikes. The author tends to prefer longer, more strenuous hikes, however there is no reason many hikes in this Guide could not be made shorter by pulling in the turn around point (or longer for that matter if you just want to keep going). Difficulty is too subjective to provide any useful information, an easy 9 mile stroll through the Sonoran desert in January may be quite a struggle in the heat of the summer. In addition, be aware that weather, cows, development or other forces could greatly change conditions as described by the author. It is up to each hiker to know their own limits; when in doubt turn around.

Once again remember that this Guide is only a reference tool, it does not replace a map or your own good sense.  Please read the disclaimer in the 'Warning' page.  The solitude you are seeking comes with a risk.  When you are out in the middle of nowhere communing with the cacti make no mistake - you are on your own!
