On Sunday June 15th I'm doing Kendrick Mountain up the normal front face.
Kendrick tops out at about 10,400 feet above sea level and I'm estimating about 2500 feet of elevation gain on the hike that comes in around 6 miles. Its hot in Phoenix so come north for some cool hiking.
I am camping in Flagstaff this weekend so will meet everyone at the trailhead.
Meeting spot: Dennys on Bell Road for a 7 am departure. Meet in the lot south of Denny's and east of Fry's.
We will all rendezvous at the trailhead for a trail start hopefully around 10 am (this may mean probably no stopping in Flagstaff for Breakfast or coffee before the hike depending on your drive time). Passenger car is fine for getting to the trailhead. Every driver and passenger is responsible for making gas/wear and tear arrangements for carpool payment so please make sure you understand your costs before you hop in.
Monsoon season is approaching. This hike is rain or shine with the exception of electrical activity which will bring the hike to an immediate stop for safety reasons, storm safety will be covered at the trailhead before the hike.
There is no water source for Kendrick so you will need all your water for the day on your person for this hike. Obviously food and snacks as well as weather protection is needed.
From Flagstaff take US180 towards the Grand Canyon. Turn left on FR245. Follow it back to FS171 and take a right. From 171 turn right on 171a and that road will lead you to the Kendrick Trail
