Members signing up for this trip must have prior hiking attendance of a minimum of 2 hikes with Adventuring within the past year (if you don't meet the minimum but think you're capable of doing all the hikes, then contact one of the trip leaders to discuss: Joe Cook, or Philip Tracy).

This trip is a continuation of an Adventuring tradition of hosting longer, more ambitious excursions domestically or internationally. Based on the success of the Adventuring trip to Spain in June 2019, this Arizona trip features multiple days of hiking in the Northern Arizona and Flagstaff area. The trip includes accommodations and hiking routes with Adventuring leaders. The trip does not include transportation from participant’s home to Flagstaff, Arizona. Each Adventurer must make their own arrangements to arrive in Flagstaff on October 10, and depart on October 17. Local transportation to daily hikes and tour events will be provided. The costs for lodging, van rental and food will be split among Adventurers on the trip. The costs for lodging and van rental, shared between 6-9 guests, will be between $350-$500 per person for a week in Arizona hiking. The hikes range in distance from 5 to 14 miles and up to 3,300 feet of elevation gain. The length of the longer hikes, the elevation gain, and the overall itinerary of hiking most days put this trip in the moderate to strenuous category. Hikes include the Grand Canyon, Sunset Crater, Oak Creek Canyon and Humphreys Peak, the tallest mountain in Arizona at 12,633 feet. An excursion is planned for touring

Monument Valley. Hikes and excursions will be adapted to weather conditions.

A deposit of $300 is required to confirm your participation.

A “Meetup” reservation without deposit does not hold your spot. Please contact trip leader Philip Tracy [] for information on where to mail your deposit.
