Flagstaff Sat - Sun, July 20 - 21
Leader: Randy Baker ([masked])

Length: +/- 18 miles over 2 days
Phone: [masked]

Rating: Moderate
Backpackers MUST RSVP BY PHONE by July 18 if attending (deposit $ required).

This hike follows two passages of the 790-mile Arizona Trail that stitches the state together from south to north.
From the Marshall Lake Trailhead we will head north-west on the AZT #31 across flat forest land, and then descend steeply into Lower Walnut Canyon. Here we will find Grand Canyon style cliffs with pronounced cross-bedding and deep red hue petrified Permian Age sand dunes. Passing the Sandy's Canyon Trail #137 junction, we will continue north toward Fisher Point, where we will camp for the night. From here we can explore west into Walnut Canyon toward the Sinagua cliff dwellings built under the natural limestone overhangs. On Sunday we will continue north on AZT #32 to our waiting vehicles near Rio de Flag in Flagstaff.

To finish the trip in grand style we will visit to a Flagstaff brew pub.

Day hikers are welcome to join us on Saturday by starting from the Sandy's Canyon Trailhead near the Vista Canyon Campground (4.5 miles R/T).
