Escape the summer valley inferno and join us for a cool day in the pines near Flagstaff! O'Leary Peak is the only cinder cone near Sunset Crater that is legal to climb! On the way to the peak, we will be hiking on an abandoned road past the Bonito lava flow through mixed conifer vegetation. We may observe deer, elk, and/or hawks. Weather permitting, the summit of this 8,965-foot lava-dome volcano provides outstanding views into Sunset Crater. The summit provides astounding late-afternoon view of the colors of Sunset Crater and the Painted Desert beyond. Be sure to bring ample food and water. Also, pack accordingly for variable weather conditions. Please respect cultural artifacts--take only pictures, leave only footprints.
If you are not a member of Friend's Hiking Club, you are still most welcome on the hike. There is a $3.00 P/P fee, however. A one year membership is $15.00, and there is no per hike fee once a member.
