Friends in town needed to see the Canyon, and this trail is always the way I show em. We went down to Cedar Ridge on a mild autumn day, and clouds rolled in mid-afternoon so we turned it around. Going up is always easier on the joints (and quicker) for this one.

First introduction of Sedona to some out of town friends....this one blew their socks off. With each climb the views get better, and it never is too grueling to where they couldn't take a quick breather. Maybe my favorite Sedona hike.

This is perhaps the most reknowned mtb trail in the states, and it's different than any trails (including Sedona) that I've been on before. The trail is basically a moguls route through the sandstone boulders of the Utah desert. While I had a pretty good idea of why white knuckled mountain bikers have developed their rep over the years, this route sealed the deal for me:). The entire trail is striped white to offer a very clear directional path, but that doesn't mean that more than a few times upon seeing the arrows I thought to myself, you've gotta be sh***ing me! Some of the incline and declines were very sharp without relief, and crashing on slickrock doesn't feel that great. There were a couple times I had to hike a bike up some of the sharper inclines, and swallow my guts on the way back down :y:

Given the terrain, it's a time consuming ride, and keeping an eye on my watch I ran out of time early on and had to head back to catch my ride. I was the only mtber in my group, and convinced my wife and friend that they should go grocery shopping and fill up gas while I go for a ride, he he he he (I'd driven the last ~800 miles so I figured fair). Turns out the joke was partially on me as we embarked on our hike later in the day at which point I then realized how much this ride totally drained me. Hope I get a chance for redemption to slay the dragon...

We began from the Squaw Flat trailhead instead of the Elephant Hill TH as we were driving an RV and couldn't make it to the official trailhead. NOTE: If your vehicle is over 20, you can't make it to the Elephant Hill TH and must start from here - it adds a few extra miles so plan accordingly. Unfortunately we could have used those extra minutes:/

Beginning at Elephant Hill TH the trail takes quick descent into the Big Spring area. The trailmaps only label the trails alphanumerically, but trailmarkers at trail confluences direct you towards your destination. As long as you know where you're going rather than the trail you're on you'll get there:)

After the second trail confluence, this hike starts to go for a ride. You'll traverse slick rock mounds and walk some considerable distance atop eroded limestone features. The trail is marked by cairns about every .1 mile in some places so it's easy to stay on track here. It's a marked change from the shrubby trailhead area, and with elevation views of the needles start to come into view.

After a bit of very martian like limestone hiking, you get over the first ridge and are rewarded with views into Elephant Canyon, which you'll soon descent into. The rock on this side is much redder and is reminiscent of a scramble down the side of Sedona slickrock at Cathedral Rock. This will take you partly down to the wash, but not all the way, as a little further along there are some rocks that must be passed.

Of course in typical epic west trail fashion, between two huge rock features is about a 2' walkway extending ~25 yards that must be crossed before the next section of trail. The surprises on this trail of different hiking styles just kept coming. At this point (maybe 3 miles in) we finally saw the first other hikers of the day. On a beautiful fall weekday I was wondering where all the drivers of those other RVs hiked off to.

It was around this point that we noticed the sun already starting to drift, and after a quick snack we tried to pick up the pace as much as we could. Our trailhead added about 3 miles to the trip, and we ran out of time. We hiked to the split of the joint trail and the Elephant Canyon section leading to Druid Arch, and reluctantly resigned ourselves to getting almost there. The last .75+ was all in a wash, and the final 2 were also going to be. We didn't have the time or maybe the energy also for another 5 miles in the wash. Fortunately, this was our last stop on our Big 5 trip - having just been in Arches that morning - and we'd gotten our fix of natural arches, so on we went back.

While it's an out and back, we couldn't take our eyes off the view coming home. Looking north from the trail are the escarpments that we'd been traversing; the rim of the Island in The Sky in the background; and finally the La Sals in the distance - still sans snow.

This remains a great hike mostly due to the different trail surfaces throughout but the views and terrain are national park worthy. And this is without even getting to the Arch:)

Island in the Sky District offers some breathtaking views, and if this trailhead is your first stop once entering the park you won't know where you're at until you're there:) This is a mild loop hike culminating with epic views at the arch. Standing at the arch it takes a moment to digest the scale that extends out beyond the cliffs - stay for a minute. Just make sure this isn't your only stop at Island in the Sky.

We set camp before our hike which reduced our hiking window for the afternoon, so we couldn't complete the full primitive loop; however, we had a place to sleep so i'll take that tradeoff. So we took the Devil's Garden trail out to Double Arch, and then swung underneath the Partition Arch on the way back. A few parts of the trail once beyond the Landscape Arch felt primitive - there was slickrock climbing and a couple areas where you needed to slightly hoist yourself up. A fun hike that spices up after the first mile. Beyond the Double Arch is a recessed hollow that made for a nice snack spot and views to the north through the arches. Highly recommend you at least get beyond the Landscape Arch if you can (as many don't considering this is the largest arch).

This is just for the 2 miles of the "under the rim" hike, which take you to the Hat Shop. Not rating the hike, considering how little of the trail this represents. The hike is all relative - it's Bryce, so of course it's going to be amazing. But, make sure you spend your time doing the Queen's Garden/Navajo figure 8 loop before doing this hike. Do this hike for a view of the Grand Staircase, which seems to open up from this perspective compared to farther north in the park, but the actual Hat Shop feature is very anti-climatic. The hike to this point is straight down, straight up.

Sunrise hike on Election Morning up to Hickman Bridge. Stopped off for the petroglyphs on our way over after camping the previous night in Capitol Reef, and warmed up the day with this mild hike. The trail immediately inclines to escape the river gorge and roadway to an isolated escape. On an autumn weekday we were the only ones in site, and enjoyed the echoes of the canyon to ourselves. It's a big bridge!

Bryce Canyon: One of the best hikes I've been on, the loop beginning at Sunrise Point and then immediately descending into the hoodoos via Queen's Garden Loop. In the late afternoon, the sun glowed off the hoodoos - incredible first impression of Bryce. The trail consists of many arched tunnels that escort you through the trail, sometimes serving as door ways to vastly different sceneries on the other side. At the bottom of the descent the trail bottoms out in a lightly wooded area encompassing a couple of washes, linking up with Navajo Trail.

Navajo Trail consists of several up and down switchbacks, offering initial glimpse and then wide views of the Twin Arches above. In this area the hoodoos are above and surrounded by the packed siltstone slopes. On a Monday, approaching dusk, we had the entire trail to ourselves and didn't see anyone on the entire Navajo Trail until Wall Street, near the switchbacks back up to Sunrise Point to complete the loop. (The irony of naming a several million year old geologic feature after Wall Street kills me inside.)

Great loop. Must do in Bryce, and not overly strenuous.

Thunder Mountain is a mountain bikers paradise, located just west of Bryce Canyon off of highway 12. Passing the Coyote Hollow Trailhead, continue on the FR until it terminates at the Thunder Mountain Trailhead. The trail offers repetitive switchbacks through pine groves for the first 5 or so miles, offering a gradual incline accumulated to ~400ft, topping out around 8200. If not acclimated, you'll feel the elevation at a couple points :). But once at the top, it's all downhill from there. But only if that easy.

The first ~3 or so miles offer switchbacks through hoodoos and red rocks, some areas with more technical drops and loose rock. Make sure your forks have some travel:). But once you make it past the brake-gripping switchbacks, the last 2 miles is one of the sweetest downhills you could finish on. If you don't touch the brakes you'll fly through single-track grabbing air as you go and relish in the completion of the ride. The ride completes near the Dixie Mountain Forest entrance, off 12 about a mile south of the visitors center, so be sure to shuttle it.

A busy Saturday in the national park, we embarked on the renowned Angel's Landing - my wife, a friend, and myself. The trail begins with a steady incline, with some switchbacks stacked nearly atop one another to achieve initial gain prior to wrapping towards the north and saddle. Go figure, the first half (maybe) is all paved. On a weekend this was especially busy with many gathering at the saddle where a latrine and trail fork exists. Beyond there, it's the exposure, the chains, and the fun!

Just weeks before a friend noted to my wife - I did it without using any of the chains. Well, challenge accepted and fulfilled. There are no doubt some edges with exposure (sometimes best just not to look down), but for those Arizonans accustomed to desert hikes I don't think the hike is that out of the ordinary. That doesn't mean it's not a blast hiking along the ridgeline or cliff-sides, but it receives a disproportionate amount of attention being that this is so well known in a national park.

The top was blustery and offered rewarding views of the canyon, but just as interesting were the views to the north overlooking Zion's Horseshoe Bend. In the afternoon the southern sun was warm looking over the canyon, but shadows were creeping hard to the north. Plenty of squirrels joined us for a pinnacle lunch and then we began our descent.

Drving from Vegas to Zion, some mechanical issues in our RV turned out to be a blessing in disguise causing us to stop off early at the Virgin Gorge. We hiked down to the river under a full moon that night as we spent the night, and then again the next morning. Given the water level (and more importantly temperature), we didn't cross on a casual early morning stroll and cut it short about .5 mile in. Still, the trail and campground areas offered unbelievable views of the gorge.

Groves of aspens flank the singletrack trail in a pleasant meadow just beyond the Park entrance. This trail is among the closest on the eastern entrance from Estes, and several loop options are available to hike this area between 1-6 miles with different trail combinations. Much of the trail is secluded in forests, but occasionally the trail opens up for views upwards. Trail elevation is low (for Rocky Mountain standards) so the wildlife is present and the weather conditions will be more predictable.

In mid-October, the Elk were just starting to rut and they were prominent at the trailhead, and frankly everywhere in the park. We saw herds of them, some as close as 10m away. Beaver Meadow trail is an elk track, as we tracked footprints and and saw last the remains of a leg from a carcass.

We took a trip up to CO for the weekend and spent the day doing a brief tour of Rocky Mtn Natl Park. After driving Trail Ridge Road in the east of the park, we hiked a few miles on Beaver Meadow Trail. These are photos from Trail Ridge Road, prior to the Road closing, but after first snows of the season, and ponds were already frozen over.

This bucket list trail was finally crossed off the list for us after a cloudy autumn morning in Flagstaff had us yearning for warmer weather down elevation. We began at 8:30 on a Sunday morning, which is late for late-summer hiking, but early for every one else on the trail. We ended up parking about .2 north on 89 and made our way down. The leaves were just starting to change surrounding the trail, and the air was cool when we first started. The vibe hiking this trail in north sedona is much different with the 1000' elevation differential separating the West Fork trailhead and that of others in Sedona proper. Similarly the intimate forest nature of the trail was much different than the epic red rocks I've become accustomed to.

After some of the easiest 7 miles i've hiked, I wish i'd previously recommended it to parents and friends interested in a milder hike. While it isn't climactic, it is a great hike with shade cover and patches of exposed rock - hard to find in Sedona.

On an early autumn day we went to see among the first of the leaf-changing aspens at the corner. Plenty others from the Valley joined us, and the trail/photo spots were busy, although it emptied out with the exception of a few mountain bikers on the outer extents of the trail. The trail and a road converged on the loop we created and at one point we walked straight into someone's hunting camp. Friendly folks although we cautiously approached considering the only view at 11am included rifles, beer cans, and half empty crown royal flasks :).

Nice trail - although the aspens on the other side of the mountain at lockett meadow on the way to inner basin are much denser. Only a little rain got to us, although a storm was brewing higher on the mountain.

Took a stroll on the short aspen loop in early autumn on the same day as an organized trail run, and part of the race went right through the trail. Interesting scenery with the exhausted runners on mile-high runners highs romping through the trail, although the flaggings directed me away from the trail at the far side of the loop and totally missed the cabin! Well, still a nice walk even if not the aspen haven of the San Franciscos.

Trail hike/run at 10am!? Whoa, it must be late September! :y: The north-side always seems less desirable with each trip, so I begin at the 7th Ave/Peoria TH and then loop back around via 100.

Sunday morning run...at 7am the tailgaters were in line to enter the stadium gates....right on! But then I checked back around 8 on my way back, and the gates don't open til 7. I get arriving early, but parking a car on 91st Ave for 2 hours isn't my idea of beginning a tailgate. ](*,)
