Inner Basin Trail
Another magnificent location, where you feel you are in the Rocky Mountains. You are totally enclosed in mountain peaks from ever direction. But the truth is the area is not mountains it is the reminisce of what is left of what was an incredible tall powerful volcano.
The views on this hike take your breath away. The trail we start walking on is on the northside of what is known as Lockett Meadow. From the west parking lot we head west on the Inner Basin Trail Head. We hike up about 2 miles, if you want to hike up higher, it's your call. At 2 miles up you will be surrounded at 9,800 ft in another beautiful valley where we will practice Yoga and Qigong. Sometimes we climb to 11,000 ft it’s your call. As always, we can shorten the hike if you get too tired or it feels overwhelming, or weather does not permit. In short, the total hike is between 4 or and 5 miles, depending on how you want to proceed. The road again needs to be taken slowly, if you want, you can meet the guide lower down, but he or she will only have 3 additional seats for the ride.
As usual your guide will meet you at the trail head wearing a backpack with yoga mats attached and holding an ASU Umbrella.
