Mount Humphreys Peak
This trail will take you to the highest point in Arizona. On this trail you will see the Grand Canyon, Sedona Oak Creek Canyon, Mesas of the Hopi Native American Tribe. It is recommended to start early because afternoon weather can become dangerous. I have seen it snow on the top in July. Also, in the monsoon season it can be deadly with lighting. We start at 7 am for a little under a 10-mile hike total back and forth to the saddle. Which is much easier then going all the way to the top, at almost 12 miles total.
Personally, after a 9-mile hike I usually don’t feel like I need to hike further. If you do, we will set up a guide that will meet your challenge. As usual the choice is yours, except if weather patterns look dicey, then you can go on if you want, but you are responsible for your own safety and life, as we always recommend staying safe. Right before the main entrance of Snowbowl Ski Area on the left you will find the parking lot that leads you to the trail.
As usual your guide will meet you at the trail head wearing a backpack with yoga mats attached and holding an ASU Umbrella.
