We had a small group including a four year old so at times it was challenging but we took several breaks, drank plenty of water. The change in elevation definitely took some getting used to but it was well with it. As advised by other...More

Part of the Kachina Peaks Wilderness Trail System. Be sure to sign the book so the Rangers know who you are, how many in your party, and what your destination is. The elevation climb is a challenge, but is do-able. Hiking sticks are highly recommended....More

This hike is very strenuous, high altitude, a little dangerous, but if you're in shape and prepared, it will stay with you for a life time. Check the weather first of all. I have done this hike in a younger man's clothes in winter and...More
