Mt Baldy Backpack trip

Leaving town Saturday morning; Hiking up the Baldy loop trail (West Fork trail #94) near Greer. We'll go a few miles Saturday & set up camp, then dayhiking Sunday (hopefully complete the loop trail), and return Monday morning (with a stop in Greer for breakfast).

Here's lots of information about the trail & other nearby stuff:  http://hikearizona.com/decoder.php?ZTN=784

Car-pool meetup is at the Tempe Library - We'll be in the northern-most part of the lot, just off Southern.  Don't be late!

    I'm not going to be able to go :(. Had too many cancellations through August, so can't afford to cancel any appts with clients not going out of town :(. If they all go out of town, then I'm in. Very bummed. Was looking forward to it--next time!

    The only person I see signed up for the hh is Zorik. Are you planning to attend??

    August 19, 2013

    • Kelly

      Yes, I will attend. May of us 'regulars' don;t bother to sign-up for the HH - it's not a meeting, just an informal gathering.

      August 19, 2013

  • Kendra

    For anyone coming on the trip (especially new backpacker), please come to the Wednesday TAH meeting on August 28th. So we can make sure you have the right stuff for the trip. See you then! PS We are camping at 9k feet - so expect low's in the 30-40's. also this area does get a fair bit of rain.

    • Kelly

      Kayla, The Take A Hike weekly happy hour is Wednesdays at Old Chicago - Alma School & US60 in Mesa - 7:00pm. Based on your earlier comment, we really should have a talk before you sign up for this hike. We want to make sure you bring the right stuff so you'll have a good time! Please let me know if you can make it.

      August 18, 2013

    • Hylari

      Mt baldy was beautiful!!! Can't wait to go with you guys!!! Bring your camera and a good rain coat.

  • Lisa M.

    I will be there on Wednesday at Old Chicago since we will not be able to go hiking on Thursday. Looking forward to the trip.

    Does anyone that is going have a water filter? I have all the other gear but I don't have a water filter.

    August 12, 2013

    • Kelly

      Yes, we'll bring at least two filters to share. We'll probably share some other gear as well (camp stoves at least) - less weight = more fun!

      August 12, 2013

    • Hylari

      I agree less weight is more fun!

      August 16, 2013

  • Hylari

    I don't exactly understand the route after looking at the map your provided. How many miles are you proposing the whole trip is.

    August 7, 2013

    • Kelly

      The hike to the campsite is about 4 miles. Sunday dayhiking is optional & variable - whatever you feel like doing. If we're ambitious, we'll try the whole loop, which is something like 15 miles. No obligation to do the whole thing, though!

      August 7, 2013

    • Hylari

      Okay that makes sense.
