Join us for this beautiful hike around the circumference of Picketpost in a clockwise manner. This is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful hikes recently completed by the leaders. At this time of the year, there should be water in the creeks, little water falls and pools for beautiful reflections. We will cross Arnett Creek, hike along Telegraph Canyon before joining the Arizona Trail. We will hike back heading north through the Alamo Canyon. Hiking poles are highly recommended for stream or creek crossings.

Bring snacks, lunch, water, and electrolytes. Don’t forget to bring your camera!

Cost to non-members is $5. Only guests and new members need to contact the hike leader prior to the hike.
