Details

Navaho Pass/Peak is an excellent introduction to the Teanaway area. Rife with wildflowers, fascinating geology, and just enough elevation gain to keep it interesting, this hike has just about everything that the Teanaway is known for.

On a clear day the mountain and valley views are stunning even if you stop at the Pass where we'll all rest and have lunch and the trail is an infinite delight with a lovely river, wildflowers, red rock formations and verdant meadow.

I will be aiming for a moderate/social pace and we can take plenty of breaks on our way up.

Depending on how long this hike takes us, and if everyone is down, we can all get some grub together somewhere along the way back.
