Mt. Wrightston Trek

  • Mar 3, 2013 · 8:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

We'll take a stroll up Mt. Wrightson!

Stats: 10.8 miles/4,000 ft elevation gain

I plan on taking the Old Baldy trail both up and down, however, if the ice/snow conditions are too severe on this trail, we'll reroute to the Super Trail from Josephine Saddle up and/or down. This will increase the total distance from 2 to 4 miles depending on route.

The weather this weekend is forecast to be in the 80's in Tucson, but it will still be cold at this elevation.  Prepare accordingly! Bring extra warm layers!

There's a probability of snow/ice on the northern exposures of these trails. If you have mini-crampons and gaiters, bring them in case we take Old Baldy.

Bring plenty of water, snacks food for a long strenuous hike like this.

This is not a beginners or low-intermediate hike. As always, HIKE AT YOUR OWN RISK!
