Mt Elden - Pre-beer fest hike.

Hi all,

I am having to change the venue for this hike since effective tomorrow, the Bill Williams area will be closed due to fire restrictions.

The new site for our pre-beer hike will be Mt. Elden Lookout.  This is a 5 mile RT trail, with 2,300 ft elevation gain.  You are really going to earn that beer.  The trail is well traveled, but steep.  Views are stunning along the way and when you reach the summit ridge.  Afterwards we can meet back at the campground for the beer festival.

Even if you aren't going to beerfest, you are welcome to come on the hike.  If interested in the beer fest, check out http://www.azbeer.com/flagstaff.htm

Meeting times:  Saturday 6/22 
7 am sharp: departing Coconino County Fairgrounds campground (I-17, exit 337) 
7:30 am: Elden Trailhead, just north of the Flagstaff mall on US89.

Bring: 
2L water per person 
Trail snacks 
Light jacket or windbreaker 
Sunblock, hat, bandana

If you want to come up just for the day, you'd have to leave very early in the morning.  I'm not setting up a PHX meeting place, unless there's significant interest.  I estimate you'd have to leave from our usual I-17 and Bell spot right at 5 am.

    Would like to go, but I think 7 AM will be a tad too early.

    Good call, I was hoping that closure would be after this weekend, but unfortunately it will take effect Wed. I will modify the hike for a different trail.

    I'm sorry I thought it was leaving phx at 7am. Will do a shorter hike before beer fest... Another time.

    I will NOT be attending --- better check with the Forest Service as they are closing this area to all visitation soon cause of fire danger.
