Black Range Crest Trail (trail 79). The trailhead is at Emery Pass (on highway 152). Trail 79 is well maintained and easy to follow. This is an in-and-out hike, with the round trip approximately 8 miles. This trail is rated by the forest service as easy to moderate. Will be on the trail for about 4 hours.

The hike is in the Gila National Forest. Much of the trail is shaded by trees. Though it's a long drive, but the deep forest, cool weather, fresh air, much of this make it worth. 

Travel time is about 2 hours with a pit stop at Hillsboro.  
It's a 100 mile drive.

Please contribute towards gas to whomever you are riding with.

Bring a snack or lunch and a gallon of water.

Have a full tank of gas before you come to the meeting place.

Eat breakfast and coffee before you arrive.

We will meet at 6:45 am to arrange for carpooling and leave at 7:00 am.

The roundtrip will take about 8 hours.  We want to leave on time so we can be home by 3:00, before the afternoon storms catch us.

    much as I really want to go on this hike I'm going to have to back out. I'm leaving for MN very early Tuesday morning and need to get a lot done before I leave. Steve, my granddaughter is doing better so that's not the reason.
