Who will like to start early and hike up along the Phoneline Trail to the top of Sabino Tram road to meet up with the Sabino Stroll 6pm group. We have 2 hours to get to Stop #9 so this isn't a stroll but a nice workout to burn calories before that beer at Risky's. Then head down the road to meetup with the 7pm group at the 2 mile marker.
Distance: 9.6 miles
Time: About 3 hours, 2 hours to get to Stop #9 and 1+ hours to get back to the Ramada
Elevation Gain: About 700+ft.
Don't forget to wear durable hiking shoes, bring plenty of water (at least 1.5 liters) and a Flashlight.
We will have two groups now:
Dana will leave promptly at 5:00 PM, if you are running late post a message or give me a call at[masked] and we will try to wait otherwise you may have to catch up or go with Teri's group. I move at a medium pace and I like to stop and look at the scenery, you are more than welcome to move ahead if you want.
Teri's group will leave at 5:30 PM and they will be trying to catch up with the 5:00 PM group, this is a fast paced group and if you are not sure you can keep up come at 5:00 PM and test your pace first, then you will know for next time.
The Phoneline trail is a fairly easy hike with little elevation gain. However, we are doing it in the dark which makes it a bit more challenging. We will stop to hang out with or wait for the 6 PM Sabino Stroll group. Then enjoy some food and drinks at Risky Business later.
Hope to see you all on the trail.
Look out for more chances to join the Friday Night Phoneline because I'll only post it once a month. All the other times join Bill or Me at 6 PM to take that nice short stroll up Sabino Canyon Tram road.
