NileGuide Expert Says:
Bring more water and warmer layers than you would ever think you need. And don't forget some snacks--sugar will be a valuable commodity up there.

Be sure to bring a camera, as the Humphrey's Trail offers some of the most spectacular panoramic views of the Colorado Plateau. From the top of this peak, resting at 12,336 feet above sea-level, hikers can view Sedona and the Verde Valley to the South and, particularly on clear days, the Grand Canyon can be seen on the north side. The Humphrey's trail begins alongside the Kachina Trail, from the trailhead at the back of the lower parking lot at Snowbowl. Simply go right when the trail "T's." Bring at least two, ideally three, quarts of water per person, plenty to eat, extra layers, and get an early start as this trail is 3 or 4 hours to the summit and a little less coming back. Be sure to sign the register at the top!
