Blackett's is NOT a beginner's hike, but some members have expressed an interest in making their first climb up Blackett's. This hike up Blackett's will not be race. We will be taking our time for those who are new to Blackett's. This hike is also open to members who have hiked Blackett's in the past.
For those of you not familiar with Blackett's, this is a tough steep hike and you should only sign up if you are reasonably fit and/or have been hiking regularly. If you are only doing the Friday Night Stroll, you are not ready for Blackett's. If you haven't hiked Blackett's, you are missing some incredible views of the canyon. This trail is fully exposed to the sun. You may also encounter centipedes, baby fawns, and/or rattlesnakes.
We will break at the top before heading down.
