This hike is rated INTERMEDIATE.

Join us for a terrific canyoneering hike along Cibecue Creek to an 40-foot waterfall! Along the way you'll be enchanted with gorgeous scenery and the cool flowing water. You will be hiking in and out of water from the beginning of this hike to the end. Expect to get wet while you're hiking up to at least your knees or more! Bring spare clothes to change after the event, along with lunch, snacks, swimming gear, poles, sturdy water shoes, sun gear, and of course drinking water (at least 2+ liters).

A tribal permit is needed to hike here! You can buy your permit online at: http://wmat.toffsystems.com. You will need to create a username/password. Click on Special Use Permit, Black River/Salt River, $15.00. Put the first day as July 13th and the 2nd day as July 13 as well, and it will only charge you $15.00. Please take care of permit before the day of hike, so there is no extra waiting! I.e. don't plan to pick up your permit the day of the event somewhere.

    I really enjoyed the hike. Cibecue was a beautiful place! Thank you for organizing the hike and allowing all your wait list people to participate.

    Amanda, what I really, really appreciate was your willingness to open the hike to all members on the waiting list !!! I had wanted to go on this hike for the past 6 months or so - and could not do so in the past - as a result of timing issues. That was a great hike !!! Many thanks for planning and organizing. Next time I'll remember socks. :-) Thanks Sobha.

  • Shawn

    I will be picking up Dorian on the way and have room for two more plus their stuff.

    July 12, 2013

    • Dorian T.

      Will you be driving to the gas station or walking? If driving, might be best to move it to the Safeway at McDowell and 7th St then. There's not really much parking at the gas station.

      July 12, 2013

    • Shawn

      Sure Patty!! I agree with Dorian we should probably pick the Safeway at McDowell and 7th st. Will msg you my phone number.

      Many people have emails turned off and don't get messages posted like this. You may consider an email to all attendees. If you can't do this on your phone, I could do it for you from here, just let me know.

    Sobha and I are going to Flagstaff after the hike and hiking Humphreys peak Sun. If anyone else would like to join us, you can ride with us.

    July 10, 2013

    • Sobha Y.

      Ingrid and I will meet you all at the. Cibecue trail head . It will take us 2 hours and 43 minutes to arrive at 10: am prompt .

      July 11, 2013

    • Amanda

      Make sure you stop in globe to do last minute stuff. There is nothing at the trailhead.

      July 11, 2013

  • Brian

    Hi Amanda do you have room for one more? I'll bring cash to help with fuel costs. Thanks,Brian

    July 11, 2013

    • Amanda

      No Brian. Sorry. My car has five in it.

      July 11, 2013

  • Amanda

    Remember, Lets get full cars! Please don't show up with only two or three people in a car. Another thing to consider is carpooling to the carpool spot as well. Put in comments if that is an option for you. Also don't forget your permits! You can wait til Friday to get them in case your plans change, but don't forget! :) Change of clothes, poles, food and shoes you don't care about are also good things not to forget.

    July 10, 2013

    • Shawn

      The gas station sounds good. 7am sound ok if we have to be at carpool spot 7:30??

      July 11, 2013

      July 11, 2013

  • Brian

    Ooops ! Hi Lauren do you have room for one more? I'll bring cash to help with fuel costs. Thanks,Brian

    July 11, 2013

  • Amanda

    Ok guys. I'm changing the rsvp limit. I am going to ask for everyone to help if there is a problem with parking (I.e. full cars from carpool lot and shuttling if necessary.) Let's work together to have a fun and great time!

      Hi Amanda,

    I'm at McQueen and 202 in Chandler if anyone wants a ride to the carpool site. Plenty of parking at my house or I could pick you up if you're not too far.

    July 11, 2013

  • Chris S.

    I'd like to carpool.....see you at the carpool location.

    July 10, 2013

  • Sobha Y.

    So I added plus one , it will just be me so anyone of the two on wait list can be a guest .
    Also the hiking permit , can we go to a place besides on line to get a hiking permit?

    July 10, 2013

    • Amanda

      As far as I know...no. The only place to get the permit is online. If you do not have access to internet or a printer, I suggest going to Kinko's or any place e like that...even a library.

      July 10, 2013

  • Lauren D.

    Ok, I'm having a really frustrating time trying to purchase a permit on the tribal site. It's asking me to "add holder" (what does that even mean??) and then if I want to copy info to info I just set up. Does anyone else understand how this works?

    July 10, 2013

    • Lauren D.

      Well, I did select myself as the holder and it just took me through the same loop a second time (with some of the info pre-filled and some not so I had to re-input those fields) and I wasn't able to get to step two. I tried twice...maybe I'm missing a step?

      July 10, 2013

    • Lauren D.

      Never mind - it looks like the third time was a charm :) It let me into step 2 and I was able to finish the purchase. So we're good!
