Window Peak loop

One of my favorite hikes in the area.   This will be a long, difficult hike. We will meet at Sabino Canyon and leave at least one car there for the post hike car shuttle.  We'll then carpool over to the Ventana TH.

We will hike the Ventana trail up to the window.  After a short break at the Window, we'll continue up the trail and scramble up to Window Peak.  From there, catch the Esperero trail down to Sabino canyon.

Stats:

15.5 miles and 5,000ft elevation gain.

Prepare for a long day with plenty of water( at least 4 liters), snacks, lunch, headlamps, etc.  The last bit to window peak requires a short class 3 scramble.

As always, HIKE AT YOUR OWN RISK!!

    If I was a real hiker, I would be "wit youse guys", but alas, I yam what I yam. But, seriously folks, do you have any idea how hard it is for me to schedule a hike starting at 0800. Much less 0600. Mama Mia! I am hoping to catch "youse guys" coming down the front side though. If youse guys quit making snide comments on my hike, I might even bring you some popsicles. ack ack ack ack pfttpgh! Hey Joel, I can speak LaFong as well.
