Contact hike leader for meetup details.

Retrace the steps of the brave 19 young men who faced down a firestorm as they tried to save the town of Yarnell in Arizona's newest State Park to commemorate that fateful day in June, 2013. The hike has no shade or much vegetation as it traverses a burn area. Nineteen granite placards line the route to memorialize each fallen firefighter. Say a prayer or otherwise pay your respects at their Alamo.

We'll toast their memory afterwards at El Ranchero in Wickenburg.

Because of limited trailhead parking, the group size is limited to 12 persons; so please RSVP to Bud at the above email address.

Hike will be cancelled in case of rain.
