Spring Training #5: Sixshooter to Pinal Peak
Hello everyone, This Sunday 4/22, I am leading a hike up Sixshooter Trail to the top of Pinal Peak near Globe. This is a long but rewarding hike to almost 8000 feet in elevation. Roundtrip distance is about 13 miles with elevation gain of 3400 feet. No scrambling but the trail is steep at times. Weather should be fairly mild with daytime high near 80 at the bottom, and a cool 60-65 on summit. Due to fire damage elsewhere on the mountain, we will likely take Sixshooter Trail up and down in lieu of the Telephone Trail loop in past years. With an hour plus drive each way, expect to be gone all day. Time and Place: Sunday 4/22 7:30 am Burger King at SE corner of US 60 and Power Road 9:15 am Sixshooter trailhead, CCC recreation site Icehouse Canyon Rd Bring: 3L water per person trail snacks, picnic lunch sunblock ,hat, light jacket This is a great trail, but I hear there may be some fire damage in the area. Dogs should be OK on this trail as long as they can handle the distance. Hope you can join me on this hike Charles

What we're about

Public Group

Take a Hike is an outdoor club for active adults in Arizona. We go on many hikes, but also do all other outdoor activities including camping, backpacking, kayaking, mountain biking, skiing, sailing, 4-wheeling, and more. Whatever outdoor activity you're into, we'll do it! Our hikes range very much in difficulty and location. We have easy, moderate, and difficult hikes. We hike locally, all over the state, and beyond. We meet at 7:00 pm Wednesday nights at Old Chicago - SW corner of Alma School and the US-60 in Mesa, in the Banquet Room. You DONT need to go to the meetings to participate in our group. The meetings are mostly just a chance to get together and socialize, although we do discuss past and upcomming trips. Best of all, unlike other meetup groups, this one is not driven by the group leader. This club is MEMBER DRIVEN. Anyone who wants to lead a trip may do so. Just decide where you'd like to go and when you want to meet and email me or any of the other officers the info. We will put your trip on the calendar and post the description. I will not be doing any editing so please include all pertinent information.
