A- LENGTH: 8 mi ELEV GAIN: 2600 ft PACE: Medium

Meet at 6:45 am (depart at 7:00) at the Park & Ride, southwest corner of I-17 and Bell Road.

We will start up the Humphries summit trail and bushwack off the trail to the site of a 1944 B-24J Bomber plane wreck. After visiting the site we’ll return to the summit trail and proceed to the Agassiz Saddle. Those wishing to add an extra 2 miles and 700 feet elevation gain can proceed on to Humphries Peak. We’ll be stopping in Flagstaff for something to eat after the hike. Bring plenty of water, sunscreen and wear sturdy hiking boots. Also, bring rain gear in the unlikely event of an early monsoon storm. Cost to non-members is $5.
