|Kendrick Mountain Wilderness Hike||Difficulty Rating: B|
Enjoying the heat? Me neither! Let's get out of town and visit the high country near Flagstaff, where we'll head towards the 10,418 foot summit of Kendrick Peak, the fourth tallest in Arizona. From there, you can see the Grand Canyon to the north and Sedona's Oak Creek Canyon to the south. The distance is 8-miles roundtrip, with an elevation gain of 2700'. You'll get the elevation and cool temps, without the difficulty of Humphreys Peak. With the trailhead starting at 7,700', just showing up will win you a break from the heat.
We'll trek through forests of ponderosa pine, Douglas fir, and aspen, as well as open meadows of bracken ferns and wildflowers. Just below the mountain's summit we'll visit a lookout cabin, built in the early 1900s and listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Bring hiking boots, hat, sunblock, lunch, plenty of water, jacket, money for gas (if you are not a driver) and dinner in Flagstaff. For details and to RSVP, contact Jim Graham (using this form).
