Join volunteer Naturalist Paul Larson for this hike through the transition zone to observe the changes in the plant communities. We will car shuttle for the descent. Meet at the Hellhole Canyon parking lot on S-22, 0.7 miles west of the junction with Palm Canyon Drive. Bring water, snack and sturdy shoes.
