Re: 2019 Hazolutions

I normally don't make Hazolutions: in 2018 the only one that I had was to hike Thompson Peak once during the year, and I met this resolution with about 11 hours left in the year...for 2019: hike 1,200 miles with an AEG of 300K feet; do 4 or 5 more 14ers in CO; and do Rim-cubed over 2 days...other th...

Re: 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. I have hiked a couple of times this fall on Dry Creek Rd from the Brins Mesa TH to the Vultee Arch TH, and I think that you...

Re: Bobcat sighting

you can't see the bobcat too good in this pic, but here he is lapping up some grease in a drip pan that I use when grilling

edit: I am not 100% sure that it was a bobcat, so I deleted the pic

Thanks...I never thought about doing that...I will start logging my repetitive hikes and hide them

Re: To hide, or not to hide?

If I do a repeat hike I usually don't create a trip log -- I don't want to clog up the triplogs with my own hikes.

Re: City high points

@chumley yeah, I couldn't tell for sure from my map whether it was on private land or not...but I suspected that it was, especially since Butte Peak doesn't seem to be one that people brag about hiking...that is too bad -- it would have been nice to hike the city of Scottsdale high point, but it's ...

Re: City high points

@mazatzal I've highlighted the trail in the attachment...the trail running south from Trail 245 looks like Trail 287 going to China Wall and then to Bronco Butte...but this is the only map that I have seen that shows the trail continuing to Butte Peak, and then past Butte Peak...but perhaps it is a...

Re: City high points

Looks to me like Butte Peak is in the "ritzy development" = Desert Mountain. Thanks...do you have a link to a map or anything? My National Geographic Map of the Tonto National Forest shows a trail (which I believe is Trail #287) going from Bronco Butte to Butte Peak, and then continuing SE to just ...

Thanks -- I'm thinking that going from Old Mine Road may take you on some private trails in a ritzy development, so I think that I will try and get there from Bronco Butte

Re: City high points

Has anyone ever hiked up to Butte Peak, the City of Scottsdale high point? In looking at a topo map, it looks doable to get to Butte Peak from Bronco Butte. I guess that I will have to go check it out.

I think that peakbagger is wrong when they call Peak 5906 "The Fin"...peakbagger also calls Peak 5667 "The Fin" -- they are correct on that one

Mount Ord is a good Grand Canyon training hike...you go up about 7.5 miles with an elevation gain of around 4,000'...the hike is on an old forest road with generally good footing

Re: Advice on hiking to phantom in Feb or Aug?

@Gogogo Out of curiosity, what kind of hiking experience do the 8 year old and the 10 year old have? From Phantom Ranch to the South Rim on the Bright Angel Trail is roughly 9 miles with an AEG of around 4,500'. Most of the elevation gain is in the last 4.5 miles from Indian Garden to the Rim. Have...

Re: Advice on hiking to phantom in Feb or Aug?

@Gogogo I would it would depend on some extent what sort of hiking condition that you and your children are in. Earlier this year in late Feb, I did a day hike down South Kaibab to the river and came back up Bright Angel. It was around 20 degrees at the start and was in the low 60's down by the riv...
