Aravaipa backpack

  • This location is shown only to members

I have 6 permits for a backpack trip into Aravaipa, I will be heading up Sat morning Dec 8th to the West side trailhead........will hike in and set up camp and spend the rest of the day exploring the canyons. Hike out on Sunday.
We will meet at the Burger King US 60 and Power for carpools.

 

**** there are 20 open permits coming in from the east entrance if anyone on the waiting list wants to bring in a group from that side!

 

***Sun. Nov. 18th update:   OK all, the trip is just over 2 weeks away, I'm going to ask you send me your 10.00 for the permits to secure your spots. Please contact me at[masked] this week to arrainge to pay me.If I don't hear from you by Wed. I'm going to assume your no longer interested and will remove you from the list so the waiting list can move up. If your on the wait list and no longer want to be on it please remove your self so we don't waste time getting the permits paid for. Thanks everyone!!

There is still 20 permits open for the east side entrance if anyone wants to grab some of those!!

***** Nov 29th..........someone has bailed on the trip and I have one open spot.....I don't have time to email each of you in order of your sign ups.....soooooo, the first person who contacts me will get the spot!![masked] thanks, Karen

**** Dec 3rd.........we have a full trip, no bailers now!!! The weather report for Araviapa for Sat...high of 72 low of 39. Just talked to some people there last week.....water is about shin deep, fall colors are beautiful. You will be hiking in and out of water allot!!! Plan accordingly, bring an extra pair of shoes, maybe a hiking pole for balance in the water. Once again, the meeting spot is Burger King at Power and US 60 please be there by 7:00 am so we can get moving. I have a large truck but it holds only 5 people in the cab, so hopefully there will be another car to carpool in there, otherwise someone can ride in the back of the truck :{ I plan on hiking in until we find a nice spot to camp and then day hike around the different canyons.This is my first time in here, so if anyone has a GPS or knowledge of the areas inside I'd appreciate it!  Once again my cell is[masked], call if you have any questions!! looking forward to this trip!!

    Great trip and I enjoyed everyone that was able to make it. Wish the waiting list person could have taken the no show person's spot.

    I didn't realize Julie was coming home this weekend and that Jen was flying out on the 14th-so this is my family Christmas weekend-so I have to bail-so sorry!

    November 2, 2012

  • Karen

    I've not been there before at all so I'm useless with info on either trail. A key exchange would be fun

    October 17, 2012

  • Carri

    Maybe we could do a key exchange-I would like to hike all the way through because I have never done that!

    October 16, 2012

  • Jenny

    I would volunteer to take a group in from the East entrance, but I have not been to the area before & wouldn't want to lead the group astray. Anyone else on the waiting list started from that side before?...

    October 16, 2012

  • Karen

    just a heads up.........the east side has 20 permits available if someone else wanted to bring in a group from that end!!
