All hail High Norris  Sucess!

The High Morris trail was scenic and knee freindly. It wisks you gradually up 2000 feet. Sunny and temps in 50s, 60s and 70s.

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.

Great Fall Hike  Sucess!

Parked at the end of Ruthrauff and started hiking. The trail is in great shape as it circles the mountain looking for just the right spot to start ascending. Eventually it finds that spot and before I knew it I was on the summit. Great views, as expected!
