Do the math & you be the judge. Piestewa 3 times is about 7.2 miles and 3,600 feet. Rim to Rim is about 21.5 miles and about 5,500 feet climb at the end of the hike. The 21 miles is roughly 7 miles down, 7 miles "relatively flat" and 7 miles up. Piestewa 5 times (12 miles 6,000 feet) puts you in the ballpark since on the Rim to Rim you do have about 7 miles relatively flat from Cottonwood Campground to Pipecreek Beach.bowdent1 wrote: did it 3 times in a row last Saturday, and was tired but with a half hour or so rest probably could have done it again a time or two. Is the rim to rim more difficult than this? Thanks for any input.
just imagine doing it backwards, you'll be finebowdent1 wrote:I've done the Weatherford trail to Humphreys summit in one day 5 or 6 times
