$45 / $35 for ABF Members
Want to go on a serious adventure in Anza-Borrego but don’t know the area well enough to go it alone? Not for the feeble-legged or the weak-hearted, Mike’s Hikes are extremely strenuous treks through difficult terrain. All participants should be very experienced hikers, accustomed to full day, 10+ mile strenuous hikes. Each person should be prepared with their own essentials- water, food, clothing… the works. Due to the difficulty of these hikes, the hike leader reserves the right to turn a participant away if deemed unprepared.
The first four miles of this 11-mile route is the hardest, steepest incline, including areas of dense cactus and some rock scrambling. The route then eases out to a gradual incline up to our high point, with a cross-country, undulating desert traverse. Total elevation will be around 2,500 feet.
Meet: Yaqui Pass pullout. We will BEGIN WALKING at 8am, so arrive at 7:45am. More information will be provided closer to event date.
Bring: AT LEAST 1 gallon of water, lunch, snacks, gloves, sturdy clothing and footwear, a headlamp, and anything you need to be prepared for a day-long, strenuous trek.
