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

Chitty Falls - Arizona

Rating: Difficult

This less-traveled hike offers much beauty and seclusion as it drops over 2,000 feet into Bear Canyon to Chitty Falls. Dropping off the Mogollon Rim, the trail offers expansive views of southeastern Arizona.

Areas of the trail are exposed so wear sunscreen any time of year.  The best times to hike are spring and fall.  Winter can be snowpacked and bitterly cold and summer can be toasty - it's Arizona after all.

Because of the seclusion and this trail not being widely known,  you have a solid chance of being alone on this hike.
