How Do We Get There?
Our tours take place inside the Tonto National Forest, about 40 minute drive NE of Scottsdale Arizona.

Drive out to the trailhead to meet the guide.
If you need transportation, contact us, and we may be able to arrange transportation for you. (Subject to availability) Cost is $125 round trip for up to 4 people and is very limited in availability.
The best option is to rent a car and drive to the trailhead on your own.
Ride-share companies will take you out there, but they will not come out and pick you back up after the tour. Thus, if you are using a ride share service, you will need to convince your driver to hang around or come back and pick you up, after the tour.
