HAZ - Event
The trail is new and well crafted... The Granite Mountain Hotshots were bad asses. The entrapment site aka fatality site was breathtaking and most definitely struck a nerve. My walk around video: youtu.be/M0voGkX5UE4

Prayers go out to those young men (and their families) that paid the ultimate sacrifice against the Yarnell fire.
May we never forget. This trail, and commorative plaques of each hotshot will ensure that.

The parking lot has limited space. Suggested to start super early to lay claim to parking spot. We were the first people there at 7am and had the place to ourselves. Passed flocks of people on the trail on the return.
