Re: 6 days in the superstitions, thanksgiving 2019

is there somewhere else within a few hours of phoenix that you think would be better for ~60 wilderness miles? You're getting some good advice here but you could also consider the Mazatzal Wilderness north of Phoenix. The Arizona Trail runs through it for about 50 miles. There are loop options as w...

Re: Missing hiker in the Mazatzals

Glad he was found! Gila County Sheriff reported that he’d been picked up by helicopter and airlifted to Payson.

Utah Flats route in winter?

Curious if anyone has done the Utah Flats Route in Grand Canyon during the winter? Planning an out-and-back trip there in January with stops at Bright Angel on the way in and Indian Garden on the way out. Wondering how much of a challenge any snow or ice might pose getting up and down along the rout...

Re: Thoughts on this eastern supes loop

You probably have seen this but the hike up West Pinto back to Rogers Trough is no joke. It's all uphill until you get up and over Iron Mo...
