Tuesday morning Blackett's

Time: 7:00 AM
Distance: 6.2 miles
Elevation Gain: 1,810 feet (and steep)

Day: Tuesday (not Thursday as originally posted)

Join me for a morning hike up Blackett's Ridge.  For those of you not familiar with Blackett's, this is a tough steep hike and you should only sign up if you have been hiking regularly.   Please, no beginners.  If you haven't hiked Blackett's, you are missing some incredible views of the canyon.  Lastly, this trail is fully exposed to the sun. You may also encounter centipedes, baby fawns, and/or rattlesnakes.

We will break at the top before heading down.

Recommended:

  • 3 liters of water
  • sun protection
  • snacks

Meet at the Sabino Canyon visitor's center ramada by 7:00 am.  We will be leaving promptly.

    Since we don't have a consensus, we will be staying with the original start time of 7 AM. See you tomorrow! :-)

    Sorry Don I think I'm going to past this hike up. Not feeling well right now. Have a good time. Maybe next time.

    How does everyone feel about changing the start time to 6:30? I won't change it unless everyone can do it. Please reply to this post to let me know. Thanks.

    Oh Shoots! Can't make it Tuesday. : ( Hope it works out again soon.

    I usually like to do this starting about half an hour before dawn or so, which means I first get hit by sunlight a fair ways up. Any interest in that schedule? (I AM an early morning person, which makes things easier).

      Hi Rick. In the past, I have started at 6 AM, but I wanted an extra of hour of sleep this time around. If no one else signs up by tomorrow night, we can talk about a time change.
