This will be a 2 day event - Friday, June 27 and Saturday, June 28, with 'C' hikes both days.

Friday we will rendezvous (9:00 am) at the Target as you get into Flagstaff . We will hike the 'Peaks" segment of the AZ Trail from Aspen Corner on the Snow Bowl Rd. (9,000') and hike approx. 5-6 miles north to FS Rd. 418 (8,500'). There will be a shuttle back to the POB, arranged in advance by Les. Beautiful high altitude terrain with a mix of mountain meadows, conifer forests, and aspen groves.

Saturday we will meet up once again at the Target (8:30 am). We will carpool up the Snow Bowl Rd. to the Kachina Trailhead and hike 5.3 miles to the east end of the trail, where Les will have a vehicle waiting for the ride back to the POB. This hike begins at 9360' and ends at 8620' and traverses spectacular mountain terrain. All driving with the exception of the shuttles is on pavement.

No dogs, please. Cost to non-members is $5.
