Seven Summits Training Hike: Summits 3 & 4

As part of our training to do the Seven Summits this Autumn, let's do two more summits: #3 and #4. We can park once and knock off both hikes. For information on the Seven Summits, go to http://phoenix.gov/recreation/rec/parks/preserves/specials/summit/index.html

This website is for 2012, but we'll use it as a guide for training for 2013.

We'll keep a brisk pace and these summits are steep! Not recommended for beginners - you want to be very fit for these.

First Leg: Summit #3: 1190 ft elevation gain; 2.5 miles return.

Second Leg: Summit #4: 308 ft elevation gain; 1.2 miles return.

Total: 3.7 miles

**Parking can be a challenge, so arrive early. You can wait at the base of Piestawa for a spot - people tend to come and go quickly. Or go a little further and park deeper in the park.

    And thank you Steve for taking and posting photos. I apolize to ya'll...I'm very bad at remembering to take photos and we missed a group shot at the top. So i'm especially grateful when someone like Steve makes the effort. Thanks again.

    It's a bit of a challenge for someone 58 years old, but I enjoyed it.

    Meet you at the Summit trailhead - there's a small ramada right there. For those I haven't met yet: I'm wearing black shorts and big ugly hiking socks.
