What we're about

My name is Sara and I've being hiking for over 7 years to red rock canyon, Mount Charleston, Lake Mead, Bryce, and Zion National parks. I'm a CPR & FIRST AID CERTIFY. To be part of this group all you need is to have the spirit.

Please always read the entire description on any events we post which includes this posting. It will save you a headache.

Please only people over the age of 18, unless the hiking or trip says otherwise. . The fun part to belong to this site is to do other activities too. I promise you that we'll have the best time hiking, while we meet new friends. So lets start exploring new places together. If you're new to hiking, believe me that you won't regret joining this team. I'm always open for suggestions, if you feel you want to do something else e.g. Movies, road trips, camping, or any other outdoor activity just shoot me an email and we'll try to accommodate a date. I love fiction as preference but no horror.

Although the meetup is free of charge to you; don't forget that the Organizer to this or any other meetup has to pay an annual fee to keep the group active. Besides, your organizers spent hours doing research and organizing events for you, all you do is just RSVP and join. All I'm asking is for donations whenever you can contribute. Any amount giving helps. This is not a profit organization, so the rest of the money collected will be use to help with rides or provide backpacks to those hikers who cannot afford them. Thank you for your understanding

Potato Patch Loop in Hualapai Mtn, AZ (Day trip) Doggie Friendly 🐕🐶

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

ABOUT THE HIKE: There is a trail loop at this point.. This trail goes to a valley, between the peaks, that was used for farming potatoes commercially around 1910, hence the name. We will see beautiful trees all around us, such as aspens and maybe some deer.

Distance: 5 miles round hike
Elevation: 7,000 feet
Duration: 3 -31/2 hours for hike only
Level: 2
Dogs: dogs are welcome and bring their leashes.

SUGGESTIONS ON WHAT TO BRING: A hiking backpack, 2-3 liter water, electrolytes, snacks, a sandwich, cookies for me (haha), hiking shoes, Also hiking poles are suggested. Don't forget your sunblock and hats. Check the weather the day before the hike for clothing. We might go to "Great American Pizza" In Golden Valley after the hike.
