|Trip Report : September 10, 2005|
We will hike about 2/3 of the hike that is described in Flagstaff Hikes
by Richard and Sherry Mangum and was previously hiked by the Arizona Trailblazers
on September 10, 2005. Depending upon how many people go, we will either do a key
swap with lots of people or a car shuttle with fewer people.
We will start the hike off FR 56 east of KA Hill and hike counterclockwise and end at the Pomeroy Tanks off FR 109. The trail is mostly flat and is approximately 8.5 miles long. This hike will include the full length of the rim view portion of the trail but eliminates the KA Hill climb and approximately 4 miles of the entire loop that is on the forested plateau.
