This might I say tastefully was ummmm not a human hiking trail but suitable for a four wheeler, side by side, donkey, horse, car, or quite possibly a Segway with off-road wheels. We endured shreds of volcanic rock and a calf burn for the first 20 minutes. We were determined to finish the last hike rain, shine, hike or road- yet it was not as enjoyable it was a good work out. We saw no beings until the last 200 yards who were clearly not headed to the top. The road was unforgiving in elevation gain and rocks creeping into our shoes….. I dare anyone to enjoy this hike.

    Wellllllll I would be happier with a trail verses a volcanic gravel road lol!
    Is there a celebration at the end of the challenge?

      Yes! Mark your calendar for Saturday, November 16th. We are finalizing the details — it will likely be held in Sedona.

      Also, if you have suggestions for an alternative to O’Leary, please let me know! 🙂
