Picacho Peak 24th or 25th

Post by luppup » Feb 22 2007 11:01 pm

Plan to head out to Picacho Peak this weekend if anybody is interested. Never have been there, which doesn't say much considering I have only been in AZ for 7 weeks. I survived Camelback so this should not be a problem..? That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Open to either Saturday or Sunday.

By the way, love this website. :)

Heard they lugged out an injured hiker this past weekend at Picacho.

Yes I did make it out there and loved it. I think I picked the wrong day as it was really crowded, including a ton of boyscots. Had to wait at some of the cabling spots but it was worth it.

Glad you enjoyed it.I think the times I went were on Friday's so maybr less people.I started early also.I think there doing a Civil War reenactment this month.Probably be crowded.If you go again next month or anytime after that I think I'd be up for it.I have a State Park Pass I'd like to get some use out of.
