Path of the Wolf
The Grand Canyon Wolf Recovery Project is hosting Paseo del Lobo, a wolf advocacy relay hike, from July to October 2012. The hike follows a natural dispersal corridor from the Blue Range Wolf Recovery Area (where Mexican gray wolves currently live) to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon (where we are advocating for their return).
Paseo del Lobo started near Alpine, AZ on July 8, 2012. The trail stretches 400 miles using U.S. Forest Service trails and roads, and a large portion of the Arizona Trail. The hike is a “relay” for hikers and bicyclists and consists of 55 sections from 3.5 miles to just over 10 miles. The hike will conclude at Mather Point in Grand Canyon National Park on October 13, 2012. There will be a grand finale celebration in Flagstaff on October 20 to coincide with Wolf Awareness Week.
