This hike is near Kingman, Arizona. And because I live in Arizona, I won't be meeting at the Sunset Station casino with all of you but instead I will be waiting for all of you at the second destination. I will be at "Grasshopper Junction Deli" 9313 US-93, Golden Valley, AZ 86413
You will meet at the Sunset Station Casino on the right side from the big sign at 7:00 am. The other side. Please be punctual, so you can arrange carpooling. Hualapai Mountain Park: 6250 Hualapai Mountain Rd. You will drive over 150 miles each way. Take I-95 South which will turn into I-11 momentarily then goes back to I-93. After you go up the Canyon you will come into a flat road for about 20 minutes before you see the First Gas Station. If you need to get Gas, don't get it on the first 3 stations but at the last Gas station "Conoco TA" which will be on your left side after you passed The Pilot. You will continue driving for about 20 minutes to the second destination. Grasshopper will be on your right side. I'm estimating for you to be there no later than 8:45 am. This little Deli Mart serves breakfast.
We will continue then to our destination at Hualapai together.
The highway ends in Kingman and we will continue driving on the road "Beale St." for 0.3 mi., turn right then onto Ella's Pl and drive 2.0 mil., turn right onto Hualapai Mountain Rd for 11 mi to destination.
The park has an entrance fee of $10 per vehicle and with a capacity of 4 passengers (which includes the driver). Please tip your driver $15 or more per hiker and everyone in the vehicle will pitch in for the entrance.
Although you have no annual dues anymore, I will appreciate if you can contribute with any money to keep this group active. Only for those who can. I still have dues to pay to meetup to keep this group open. Anything will be appreciate it. Thanks
