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

A. B. Young Trail - Arizona

Rating: Difficult

The A.B.Young Trail leaves from the southernmost end of the Bootlegger campground. Cross the creek and find an old metal sign indicating the trailhead.

This trail starts out as a steep hike from Oak Creek to the rim of Oak Creek Canyon, with an elevation gain of over 1,600 feet in 1.6 miles. From the Rim to East Pocket Tower you travel 0.8 mile through Ponderosa Pine forest.

The trail has over thirty switchbacks as it ascends the slope.

Along the way, you are treated to nice views of the canyon and interesting rock formations.
