I've been busy at work and living on 5-6 hrs sleep a night for the past couple of weeks and we're flying out tomorrow at 6PM. I've collected lists of hikes I'm interested in and I've got links to hiking info but I haven't had time to research timing or location to see which ones would fit into our schedule. I'm hoping Colin or somebody else can help me out with some specific trails then I can look up details. I'm especially worried about Sun since we have that whole day free and I know I'll be too busy to do much research before then.
We start early (although sometimes you have to wait until later to get good views on canyon trails) and can handle 10-12 miles in a day with 3000-3500' elevation gain. It would be nice to get a good variety in there. Any trails we should avoid or seek out because it's been too dry or wet? There are too many place on our To See list so we don't plan on coming back so I don't to make the most of our trip.
Here's when we have open for hiking
Sun 2/19 Open all day
Tue 2/21 Sonoma Dessert Museum/ West SNP/Gate’s Pass Rd
Any hikes we should consider for West SNP?
Wed 2/22 Hiking in Sabino Canyon but we have Sky Nights this day so we HAVE to be at the top of Mt Lemmon by 3:30 at the latest or we will be locked out.
Thur 2/24 My husband has been been telling everyone at work that we're gong to the rodeo so we're considering going to adult session that runs from 2-4:30. If we can fit a hike in the morning and make it to the rodeo in the afternoon, that would be great. Or if there is an awesome hike that we really need to do and can't fit elsewhere, we'd consider bailing on the rodeo.
Fri 2/24 We're open to an AM hike but we have to be cleaned up and in Scottsdale by 3:00
