What we'll do
I know it's a bit out there for the date, and since some folks are gearing up for the National Trail hike near end of January I thought I would push this fabulous hike out a little.

*** Strenuous Hike*** Let's enjoy the 360-degree views from the top of Picacho Peak. This is a challenging hike that involves steep switchbacks, rock scrambles, climbing up several cableways with an elevation change of 1,600 feet. Total distance is 4 miles round-trip and takes about 3 1/2 - 4 hours to complete depending on how fast we hike and how long we linger at the peak. Steep Inclines, switchbacks, handrails, rock scrambles, cables, narrow bridges all my favorite crazy things to add fun to a fabulous day of hiking with friends!

*** Not recommended for inexperienced hikers, or if you have a fear of heights***

Leave the poles at home or be able to stash them in your pack, you will be using your hands!

If you plan to carpool meet at the carpool area and plan to leave promptly, it should take about an hour to get to the park entrance. If you plan to meet at the trail head the park address is 15520 Picacho Peak Rd, Picacho, AZ 85141. Head to Hunter Trail parking area. Please post if you plan to meet at the trail head parking lot.
