GC Training #8: Mt Ord

  • Apr 28, 2013 · 8:30 AM

Hi all,

This Sunday, I'm leading another tough hike to train for the Canyon.  The destination is Mt. Ord between here and Payson.  This is a difficult hike.  RT distance measures 15 miles, elevation gain of nearly 4000 ft.  We'll be hiking to the top of Mt. Ord via the old fire road. Please plan to be out there most of the day.

It's going to be warm on Sunday, so bring plenty of water and sun protection.

Time and Place:
Sunday 4/28: 8:30 am, Target parking lot on Shea, 1/2 mile west of SR87

3.5L water per person
Picnic lunch, trail snacks
light windbreaker for the summit
plenty of sunblock

Dogs are OK on this trail, but it is rough terrain and long distance.

Hope you can make it.

    Super bummed to cancel - I strained my back last week & have been trying to nurse it so I could do this hike, but think it's probably still too tight this morning to do such a challenging up-hill. Have a great time out today - -

    My leg is in worse shape than I thought, so I have to cancel. Cam and I are going to do an easier hike in town. Thanks for organizing, Charles!

    Wish I could go, but I have family coming to town Sunday from WI, which only happens about once every 4 to 5 years, so I will have to pass :( I remember doing this one last year and it was freezing at the top, with ice chunks being blown off the tower by the wind!! Hopefully you guys will have better weather this year!!
