Climbed Humphrey's after a business trip to PHX and a job interview that would move me to Flagstaff in December 1999. Needless to day I climbed Humphrey's a few more times after I moved there...great mountain!!!

Lots of snow on the trail still. Next time I need snowshoes, lots of needless effort without them. Great hike.

A great half day outing on a beautiful mountain. Go in fall and look down into a colorful Inner Basin.

What a nice hike! I have never been this high before. it was very windy day. North Rim of Grand Canyon was on fire, i dont know if it is still going on, you could see the smoke from Humphrey's Peak, covering very long distance. I feel good going to the top after coming from the city of San Francisco. i wont forget this day. if you are around this beautiful mountain you should not miss this hike.

Our first successful Humphreys climb - we'd been thwarted twice already. Got to the summit in a bit less than 3 hours to be greeted with steady 40 mph winds with 60 mph gusts and threatening clouds. We got down FAST, and luckily the weather cleared up once we got back to the saddle. This is the first mountain I've climbed where getting down feels like it takes as long as getting up. About five hours r/t.

First trip over 10000 (yes, I'm finally signing the log) It was ugly. Didn't hydrate properly or eat properly or, well, do much properly. I gained the summit eventually and gained a lot more in the process (like know-how). Climbed several times since w/o the drama. It's great to have this little slice of tundra and forestry in the middle of the desert.

I hiked up to the saddle on a visit to Flagstaff, didn't get a chance to go back and summit. Nice hike, lots of people that day.

Definitely a worthwhile hike. Upper reaches of the trail are a bit hard to follow in spots, and could be better marked to avoid damage to fragile tundra environment. Stunning view from my sixth state highpoint.

It was a four hour hike to the summit, but I took my time and stopped frequently to take pictures of things, so it's probably an hour or half hour shorter for a focused hiker. Was a bit frustrating comin' down as I'd hoped to descend quickly, but rocky and tree-root-y trail makes for slower descent than average. Six hour hike, round trip.

Oh, and a cute boy leavin' the summit just as I came up. Nice smile. : )

JP and I had to add this to our list of highpoints. Relatively easy hike under near perfect conditions.

Great hike up in the early morning. The sky OPENED UP on us on the way down. Hail, Rail, Thunder, and Lightning. Great fun.

May 1994. Made it to the ridge and 12089 but were thwarted by the blasting winds that were nearly blowing us up the mountain simply by the sail effect on my tied down cowboy hat. Later we learned of the high wind advisory for the day. Both of us later regretted not pressing on. Very icy trail that day tired us out too.

After being sent to Phoenix for work on Saturday, got up at 4AM Sunday for the drive from PHX (111F, Sat afternoon) to Flagstaff (57F, Sun morning). Was worried about thunder, but still couldn't manage to start earlier than 7:30AM. Forgetting my sunscreen and having to run back to the car did not help. This is a great trail, and the mixed forest reminded me of hiking in the Adirondacks.

Summited at 9:50AM, just as the clouds started to build. The forest service recommends 3 hours for this? Four hours is more reasonable for someone in average shape. I second the comment about the flies (marred my pictures too).

Either the natives know much more about Northern Arizona thunder than me, or they are going for Darwin awards. Passed no less than 30 people going up into the building cloud. I made it back to the car (after stopping to do a few flips in the field), very slightly wet, 2 minutes before the first lightning bolt.

Hiked with Paul. Still sore from Mt. Whitney, we still made it up. Stupid false summits tricked us though! Windy at the top, but we had the summit to ourselves. Could see the north rim of the Grand Canyon. Nice!

Once again...a fantastic day hike. The last ten feet of the summitt were HORRIBLE as there was somekind of insect swarm. Could NOT even breath. Of my 4/5 times on this climb, the ONLY time I've ever experienced this...weird.
Make sure to research and visit the bomber crash on your way down...very worthwhile.

I hiked Humphreys via the inner basin trail from locket meadow this is the route to take it is a little longer than snow bowl but much more scenic. It was a great day for a hike. The bugs are heavy in late June.

Did this one with the TalusMonkey, Tanya, Caroline and Fred Moore. Wonderful November weather and one of the best views I've ever seen: beats a lot of 14ers for sure.

Started at 6am and met with thunder and lightning once I was off of the ridgeline coming down the mountain. Made me a little nervous at times.

Climbed again with friends from work. Much better weather this time around. Great views again. Just happened to top out on Arizona's highpoint on my 2 year anniversary with summitpost.
