Arizona Trailblazers Hiking Club
Robber’s Roost Encore (rescheduled)
when Sunday, January 31, 2021
  Trip Report : October 27, 2018
where Secluded location, Cococino National Forest
the hike     Unleash your masked rebellious nature by mirroring the path of purported scofflaws and bootleggers to Robber’s Roost. To access, with stealth and guile we will slink up a forest road to unmarked paths and bushwhacks towards the lair.
    Should we meet other hooligans, we will disarm them with our good intent and perhaps form an alliance. Who knows what we may find in the depths of the mysterious retreat!
    With the express intent of confounding and impressing other aspirants, we will approach the target with even a more unorthodox routing than in 2018. They will see us coming, but know they cannot stop our inevitable arrival!
