Tip of the day

Understand and protect your sleeping bag's temperature rating! 
Remember, these are low-end, assisted ratings. 

1) You will need an insulated sleeping pad and some clothing layers to keep comfortable down to your bag's temperature rating.

2) Learn how to properly close and cinch your bag around your body to retain heat.

3) Store your bag by hanging it  - not crammed in the stuff sack. This keeps the fill from getting compressed and losing its insulating power.



Featured Trail

Dixie Mine Trail - Arizona

Rating: Easy

This is an easy trail with great views of the McDowell Mountains and Four Peaks and meanders over and through the ridges, valleys and arroyos in the foothills of the McDowell Mountains.  The  entire park is home to abundant wildlife, and is a great place for bird watchers.

The trail meets up with several other routes in the area of the old Dixie Mine, offering multiple options for a longer hike.  The mine is closed and barred - going inside is strictly forbidden and unsafe.
