Hello ladies! We are bringing back the highest point in Arizona for National Summit Day! This hike is dependent on good weather and I will monitor the conditions leading up to the hike.

I recommend hiking boots. I usually ALWAYS hike in trail runners, but there is shale and other rocks that move towards the top and if you need ankle support - this is where you would need it most!

This is a hike that knowing your own personal limits is important. I want everyone who feels they can go all the way to the top - feel free to do so, and those that feel that need to stop - to do so also. This time of year the trail will have a lot of traffic, so if anyone needs to stop you won't be sitting in the forest alone! We can talk more about this closer to the hike! But please feel free to shoot me a message if you have any questions!

Bring snacks/food/and lots of water (more than you think you need). 
This hike isn't a long hike, but the incline is pretty steady all the way to the top. Add in the altitude and you have a fun combination!
