This is a great trail for anyone because it's not extremely dangerous and you can turn back as soon as you feel you've reached your uphill limit. Do this hike early on summer or warm spring/fall days otherwise you will be really cold for the...More

Part of the Kachina Peaks Wilderness Trail System. Be sure to sign the book so the Rangers know who you are, how many in your party, and what your destination is. The elevation climb is a challenge, but is do-able. Hiking sticks are highly recommended....More

This peak was on my list of hikes when I was planning my trip and I'm really glad (but also very annoyed!) that I did it. I visited in September and even though the weather was lovely clear blue skies and sunshine when I set...More

This peak is my fav...The views up here are fabulous, because you can see almost to the Grand Canyon & the reverse is true. When you are at the entrance to the canyon you can see the peaks in the distance. This is about 1...More
