3RD Annual Vulture Peak Turkey Trot in WICKENBURG

  • November 22, 2012 · 9:30 AM

O.K. Kids we are headed back to the Vulture Peak in Wickenburg Az. These hikes have been a lot of fun and since they are an in and out you can go all the way to the top or stop part-way.. There will be some rocks and steep sections,, however most people will have no trouble going at least to the "saddle" where the views are awesome.. The more adventuresome hikers will go to the top with some hand and feet rock scrambling being required,,once there you will be rewarded with a wonderful 360 degree panorama of the whole west valley..

Directions: Drive North on Hwy. 60 into Wickenburg where you continue thru town approximately 2-3 miles to the intersection with the Safeway grocery store,, go left (south) approximately 7 miles to a large parking area on your left where you will turn in and drive all the way to the back to the Trailhead.. The hike will start at 9:30 A.M.

Dogs: WELL BEHAVED DOGS are always welcome,, however if your dog bites, growls, snaps, lunges at other dogs and or people or is otherwise ill behaved please leave your dog at home out of respect for your fellow hiker.. This is not a training class...........

    Hands down the best hike I've done so far in AZ, especially the part from the saddle to the peak!

    I figure we will be back to the carpool location around 3 PM. Ask other members if they plan on stopping for a meal at the carpool. Remember to share the gas.
