GC Warmup #2: Black Mesa Loop

  • Mar 10, 2013 · 9:00 AM
  • Burger King

Hi all,

This Sunday, I'll lead another GC training hike.  The destination is Black Mesa Loop in the Superstitions.  This is a moderate hike, 9 miles in length.  Slight elevation gain along the Black Mesa Trail.  We'll be going at a up-tempo pace, a good way to stretch your legs and elevate your heart rate. It'll also tell you how much distance you can handle.

This will also likely be the last moderate training hike, so get in on the fun while you can.  New members welcome.  We will be taking a counterclockwise loop along the Dutchman, Black Mesa, and Second Water Trails.

Time and Place:

Sunday 3/10, 9 am
Burger King, SE corner of US60 and Power Road
First Water Trailhead (approx 9:40 am)

Bring:

2.5L water per person
trail snacks
emergency poncho / waterproof clothes just in case

Dogs are welcome but they must be able to handle the distance on rough terrain.

Hope you can make it!

Charles

    Everything was perfect today: the weather was ideal and the people were great. The trail was challenging but also enjoyable. Everything went seamlessly. Thank you very much Charles and all the fellow hikers! It was a great first experience!

      If I don't make the cut, I'll probably go hiking somewhere else in the Supes. Hit me up if you're interested. Edit: I hope this isn't a faux pas on these boards. If so...my bad.

    I hate missing these training hikes, but am running my first half marathon next Sat, the 16th. After that I will be free to hike again. Can't wait for GC Warm-up #3!!!
