Re: RS Route + Triplog

@joebartels
Hmm. Not sure why I didn't see that notification before. Is it hard to up the queue limit to 2 or 3? Would be preferable to having to go back and forth to RS to upload multiple routes.

Re: RS Route + Triplog

I just tried the triplog/route post from RS for three hikes I just logged. However, when I went online, only the first of the three showed up as an unfinished triplog. I can't find the other two on HAZ now. :-k

Re: Where to park and ride in Apache Trail

I've mountain-biked the Apache Trail from Canyon Lake (Tortilla Flat) to Roosevelt Lake. If the road is open generally, I'm not aware of anything that prohibits biking it. It is a tough haul, with a surprising amount of elevation gain. And, of course, this time of year, it will be roasting. I parked...

Re: RS Route + Triplog

So, with the proposed change, I won't be able to just post a route from RS? Instead, I will have to open a draft triplog with the route embedded; then, if I don't want to type triplog on my phone (which I most definitely don't want to do), I'll have to go online and finish the triplog before the rou...

Choices among North Rim Hikes

Heading up to the North Rim this weekend. Time is limited, so trying to choose "best" options. I have all day Saturday, plus Sunday morning. Given my company, we will be staying up on the rim and not doing anything with much AEG. I haven't done any of the below hikes. If you had to choose among the ...

Re: overnight kayak Lake Powell?

@mfox
Where did you end up overnighting? Also, any side-trips on the way down? Which backhaul service did you use? I've been eyeing this one for awhile.

Re: Hikes en route to San Diego from Phx

@chumley The trestle sounds very interesting, but it also sounds like going over the top is a bit of a hairy adventure--I'm not used to reading triplogs where you were doubting your ability to get over and back (only to then go on to tackle the trip via an 11.6 mile alternate). I'm assuming this wo...

Hikes en route to San Diego from Phx

Looking for suggestions for a good hike that’s not too far off the route to San Diego. Anywhere along the way is fine (whether in CA or AZ). Something that could be done in 3-4 hours, at most. As an alternative, a good spot for rappelling/rock climbing. Or, perhaps, both. Timing would be end of May.

@toddak
The bottom of which hill? Is it gated right off of 89? It's about 5 miles from 89 to the IB TH.

Re: Good places for beginner snowshoeing around Flagstaff

@Jim_H
No particular goal, though I always prefer having a "destination" to just randomly turning around. I'd love to do Agassiz at some point, but that's probably a little ambitious for the group I'm going with.

Secret canyon TH

Anyone with recent info on the driving conditions to get to secret canyon TH in Sedona? It’s been a few years since I ventured down dry creek/vultee arch rd. to Devils Bridge. At that time, the road was so rough, we ended up parking and walking the road. I have high clearance, but not 4wd. Thx.

Aravaipa in late December

Thinking of doing a couple of nights backpacking in Aravaipa over the Christmas break with my family (wife and couple of teens--all experienced). Never been to there. I understand it will be chilly. I'm not really deterred by the cold, per se, but also don't want to go if it's likely to be miserable...

Re: Short Hike with kids

Agree re Lynx Lake--a good one for little hikers. Other options closer to Phx (when weather permits): Treasure Loop at Lost Dutchman State Park; Hieroglyphics Trail; Several options at Usery Park; Hidden Valley via Mormon Tr. at South Mountain (may need some extra help/patience on the first mile cli...

Access to Lava River Cave from I-40 / FR171

Anybody traveled FR171 from I-40 to access the Lava River Cave? Looking for intel on road conditions.

I've only accessed the Lava River Cave from the Ft. Valley Road (State Route 180) side.

Tonto Forest Fire Restrictions--Vehicular Traffic

The current fire restrictions for Tonto NF contain an exemption for "Motor vehicles, with appropriate spark arresting devices, operated on roads and motorized trails." Does this mean that a car has to have some special, non-standard device on it in order to travel on FS roads in the Tonto forest? ht...

Re: Salome Jug, AZ :Conditions OK for this wknd?

@khachaturian44 We rappelled. I think the pool is probably still deep enough to jump, but we didn’t check depth. However, further on, in the second to last pool, we cliff jumped from about 25 ft and the pool depth was 15+ ft. Didn’t touch bottom.
