Details

I am planning on camping in the Flagstaff area the weekend of July 26th to do some hiking. My goal is to do the Weatherford-Kachina loop on Humphrey's (about 18 miles) on Saturday and then a smaller loop off of Elden on Sunday before coming home.

I will leave the Phoenix area at 5 pm on Friday the 26th to head to find camping. I plan to camp off of the Snowbowl Road either above or below the first switchback as you drive to the lodges. I will post sign(s) to indicate which road we are down. Anyone can come camp with us as you aren't required to do the same hikes--lets just get out of the heat :)

Schedule

Fri: leave town and set up camping

Saturday: I am hiking the Weatherford-Kachina loop from the Snowbowl parking lot area. If you are looking for something short then please post in the comments so that you can possibly recruit other hikers.

Sunday: I am currently hiking the Sunset-Little Bear loop on Elden. No one has to do both days of hiking, or even any hiking, to come camp with us.

Weather is quite possibly going to be wet at some point. Tarps and E-Z ups would be great to bring if you have one for added shelter and dryness. Also, if wet camping is not your thing post it in the comments and see if you can get any takers for a hotel or motel in town. I will be camping. The high should be around 80 and the low around 58, relatively warm for the season.

I will be posting the hikes separately for anyone wishing to come up for a day trip.
