Find your way out to Chiva Falls in the Rincon Mountains to experience a great swimming hole during and after the Monsoons, make sure you are well equipped with a good 4x4! Hadley’s first choice swimming hole is Tanque Verde Falls in Redingtons Pass. For a more accessible watering hole to visit, make sure to get out to Sabino Canyon where you can walk to the falls or take a tram ride and jump off at several different stops. Pack a lunch and bring your water shoes!
Hadley can be found at Trident Grill taking in a UA game or enjoying happy hour with friends and clients. Owned by a retired Navy seal, Trident has a great hometown feel with a military flair. Everyone is welcome and the food is not your average bar food, with east coast inspired menu items, to juicy burgers, you will not be disappointed! With three locations in Tucson, there is a Trident Grill near you!
