Hike Log

Double Summit!


Kings Canyon

Type of Hike:

Day hike

Trail Conditions:

Trail in good condition


Road suitable for all vehicles


Bugs were not too bad


Snow free

We accidentally parked at another trailhead on the north side of the mountain but figured out that we were at the wrong spot and were on the correct trail 15 minutes later.  Out of all six peaks in the Arizona Winter Challenge, I think Wasson was the easiest.  The trail is mostly dirt, so it's not the bouldering adventure that Flatiron and Camelback can be.  It was a beautiful day, the sun was shining but it wasn't hot.  It was a clear day, so there were plenty of great views of Tucson, if you're into that kind of thing (Go Devils!)  The intermittent sounds of gunshots from (what I'm hoping was) a nearby shooting range added to the fun.  It was such a great hike, we decided to double up!
