    Tim L reviewed Mount Colden via Avalanche Pass Trail

    about 1 month ago

    This was one of my first difficult hikes I've done. After having done hikes in places like Sedona, Zion, the Rockies, and Grand Canyon, this is still my favorite hike. Maybe I have fond memories of this being the first hike that me and my new fiancee went on together. But it's more that this hike is just charming.

    We did this hike in the winter, during November. Scrambling up felt incredibly dangerous and exhilarating in ice and wet granite, but was actually a ton of fun. Coming down the other side was a breeze compared to up. The views are stunning, being above the clouds.

    Do this hike. Just do it.

    Tim L reviewed Finger Rock Canyon To Mount Kimbal To Pima Canyon

    This was a difficult hike. Kicked my butt. I started out early in the day and took my time. Pima canyon itself is beautiful going down. The views of the canyon are stunning. HOWEVER! The pima canyon trail going down is very overgrown for the first 2/3. Really difficult to see the trail for most of it. I lost my way several times. Only my GPS app helped me finally make it to the bottom. Otherwise, I'd come back and do this again.

    Tim L reviewed East Rim Trail to Observation Point

    I work in Arizona but brought my city slicker sisters to nature for the first time and this was one of their first hikes. Amazing, to say the least. The views down the canyon from the top, and the numerous stops along the way were stunning.

    Having done this twice, I personally think that the little shelf of sand once you finish the last few switchbacks before the last flat mile is much better than the actual Observation point because it has much fewer people, and the view is just as good. We stopped at the shelf for lunch and had the place to ourselves.

    Absolutely stunning. Did this in mid August. Started at 6AM. Made it down and up by 2PM, with about an hour of sitting at the bottom and another hour 2/3 of the way up. It was very hot by the time I was coming back up. Once you make it past the 3 mile house, there are a lot fewer people. I felt terrible for the people at the top when I came back up because it was so muggy that the North Rim wasn't visible, but once you make it a few miles down, you can see everything!

    The best part of the hike was the last few miles. The views inside of the canyon itself are better than the ones from the top because there are fewer people, and because you get an up close look at the rock formations in the distance.

    Don't do this hike unless you know what you're in for! Almost 18 miles and 5k feet in elevation is no joke.

    Amazing hike. Did this in two days, second 14er. First one was La Plata, which I thought was harder. But then again I learned my lesson and took ibuprofen and tylenol every 6 hours to prevent the pounding headache that I had with La Plata.

    This was part of a bachelor party! We arrived Friday at trailhead at 11AM, hiked up the trail to the second campsite about 3.7 miles in (much better than first), and arrived around 2PM. First campsite super crowded, had about 7 groups. We had the second one to ourselves pretty much. Set alarm for 1:30AM to go outside and find a sky lit up with stars and a great view of the milky way and some sweet shooting stars.

    Woke up next day, lazying around and left at 9:30AM. Summited with day packs around 2PM because we are out of shape. Tough hike with the elevation, with a small 5-10 minute technical climb at the end but definitely doable. Views on top are of course, unbelievable. Shared some celebratory scotch at the top.

    Things to keep in mind:

    - You need a 4x4 to get to the trailhead, Definitely. A miniSUV might make it, maybe.
    - Plenty of water along the trail. Bring iodine pills, a pump, or what have you. No need to carry tons of water.
    - Campfires are usually allowed, except when it's super dry in the summer and there's a fire ban in place

    We did not do Columbia too, but ran into some people who summited Columbia, and hiked across the ridge to Harvard. They had said Columbia is the toughest they've ever done after 12x 14ers. Take care with attempting to bag 2 peaks in a day.

    10/10 would do again

    Solid hike. Fun way up, but trail was difficult to follow. But whatever, since there was really just one way up. Views at time were fantastic though. Could see Weaver's Needle, Flatiron, and Browns peak from the top.

    Coming down was very dangerous. Lots of loose rock and trail meanders.

    I prefer Flatiron to this one for sure!

    This was my first 14er. Not from altitude, and even with both Tylenol 1g and 400mg ibuprofen I still had a pounding headache above 12.5k. That didn't stop me from loving this hike though.

    Really tough. Super short of breath. But the views at the end were absolutely amazing. The hike up varied a lot in terrain, and I loved every section of it. Coming down was hard. Lost my way a few times even with a GPS app since the trail was not well marked.

    Would do this again.

    Beautiful day spent in solitude. Went counterclockwise starting at 11am, and ran into 3 people coming the other way. Finished around 530. Stopped halfway for a 30 minute break.

    Loved the changing scenery on this hike. Went from rolling hills, to a dry riverbed, up and over the trail to Peralta.

    Hiked in late April, and thought I could get away with 2.5 to 3L of water. Ran out about 2 hours before the end of the trail, making it a real adventure! I would bring 4L for this hike in the future. That first taste of cold water from the gas station was refreshing to say the least.

    Would absolutely come back to this location and try it clockwise next time.
