Possible hike in the winter?

Post by shedde » Oct 13 2018 9:23 am

I'm thinking of doing a hike of the southern most part (going northbound) in late November/early December. Thoughts on this? Will it be too cold? Or are there just passages I should avoid?

Whether it will be too cold is largely dependent on how well prepared you are.

In my opinion, no passage should be avoided.

Navigate your way over to the Arizona Trail Association's website at aztrail.org, become a member, and get access to all the information on the trail you will need. Armed with all that knowledge, you will then be able to make a informed decision about when to go and how to prepare.

Happy hiking!
