    FREE SAMPLES ON THE MOUNTAIN THIS SATURDAY MAY 25, 2013
    actual product
     
    Hikers—just a reminder that I’ll be handing out free samples of Post Grape-Nuts Fit cereal on Flagstaff’s O’Leary Peak this Saturday.  In addition to the goodies, this trail features over-the-top views of Sunset Crater National Monument. So—what’s keeping you at home?
     
    DATE:  Saturday, May 25, 2013. NO RSVP—just show up and start hiking.
    TIME:  we’ll be on the mountain from approx. 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
    LENGTH:  10 miles roundtrip
    ELEVATION: 6956′ – 8916′
    RATING: moderate-difficult (you are responsible for your own gear and safety, this is not a sponsored hike)

    GETTING THERE:
    From Phoenix, go north on I17 to the I40 interchange in Flagstaff.  Head east (go right) on I40 to exit 201 for US89 north.  Go roughly 10 miles north on US89 and turn right at the sign for Sunset Crater National Park (FR545).  Follow this road 1.5 miles and turn left at FR545A for O’Leary Campground.  Continue 0.3 mile to a free parking apron at the summit road gate.  Do not park in the campground—unless, of course, you plan to camp there and pay the fee.

    Bio: Serial blogger, manic hiker and “mom” to a dozen adopted dogs, Mare Czinar has been exploring Arizona trails for more than 20 years. After being led astray (or just plain confused) by outdated hiking books and online resources (hence the tagline: We got lost, so you don’t have to), Czinar sought to create a fully vetted, frequently updated online hike travelogue with current driving and hiking directions to spare fellow hikers the mental and physical wear-and-tear of aimless wandering. In addition, blog entries are amended when road closures or wildfires restrict trail access. When not working, blogging, writing about the great outdoors or picking up dog poo, Czinar attempts to “stay found” while checking out new trails.
