Kings Canyon Trail  Sucess!

Parking lot was full at 9am but I waited about ten minutes and a space opened up. Warm but a nice hike. Lots of people down low but very few up high.

Part of our Cactus Circuit  Sucess!

Spent a couple days exploring the park - quick loop via King Canyon to Hugh Norris to Gould Mine trails. Beautiful weather in the upper 60's. Not too crowded. Great fun!

Wasson Peak  Sucess!

Kessler and I climbed Wasson Peak from the Hugh Norris Trail, which is the longest, but most scenic route up the mountain. It was a pretty warm day and we sweated a lot. There were a lot of people on the trails in the morning, but by afternoon the mountain was deserted because people wanted to go see the super bowl. We saw one roadrunner on the way to the summit.

Large group hike  Sucess!

Took a large group, and hiked Amole, Wasson, and Peak 4236. Very crowded atop Wasson.

All hail Hugh Norris  Sucess!

The Hugh Norris trail was scenic and knee friendly. It wisks you gradually up 2000 feet. Sunny and temps in 50s, 60s and 70s. With Evan.

Nice day  Sucess!

Temps topped out at about 80 today, so nice morning hike with only about 3 other people seen on the trail.

Second prominence peak of the day after doing Lemmon earlier. Great hike along the King Canyon Trail. The Saguaros were pretty spectacular along the way.

Nice "winter"summit  Sucess!

Hiked up the Hugh Norris Trail and down Kings Canyon with my son. Lucky my wife willing to drop us at the trailhead and then meet yes at e Sonoran Desert Museum a few hours later so we could do a point to point hike. Loved the dry trail, great views, colorful flowers and small number of hikers. Very different than the mountains back home in Vermont this time of year!

Great Hike  Sucess!

I am from Kansas, the scenery here is of a different kind of beauty. The beautiful plants contrast the bare rock everywhere. It is very beautiful. I went during spring break. Be sure to bring lots of water with you. It is still the desert, even if it is not hot out, it is really dry!

Great hike  Sucess!

Went up the King's Canyon trail and came down the Sendero Esperanza. Did it with a couple of hiking friends at the end of a week long trip to Tucson. Great views and lots of cactus in bloom.

Wasson Peak  Sucess!

Great hike with many route options. Shortest trail is King's Canyon but Hugh Norris is by far the best.

Pre-dawn Hike  Sucess!

I started hiking at 5:15 AM along the Kings Canyon Trail. I reached the summit in only 1H30M, and I descended via a different trail variation and bagged nearby Amole Peak. I was shocked to find two other hikers/ trail runners coming from another trail near the summit, so early in the morning. Nice area. Great views.
