To anyone reading this thread, which days will you be there? It will help to know who is available on which days for getting people together.

I get there at 8:30 PM Thursday & leave Sunday at 4:30 PM (both Phoenix time).

Let's see if anyone else chimes in with a vehicle. It is not safe to go out into the wilderness with one vehicle.
Can't bring a vehicle but I'm definitely down for the ride. Camelback as well.

Your vehicle is more than capable!
I just looked up the Apache Trail and see that it is closed due to road damage from flooding. :(

I've never driven it but it looks beautiful. Maybe the partial drive is worth it?

The closed section of the road is the most spectacular part. Some pics from my last trip. 20190611_072845.jpg 20190611_101054.jpg 20190611_102942.jpg 20190611_103232.jpg 20190611_104820.jpg 20190611_110141.jpg

As @biophase suggested, we should take the partial drive up to the road closure. Then take a medium effort trail hike in the Superstitions. I've done a couple of hikes there but @AllenCrawley could probably guide us better on this.

The Apache Trail road is a little rough but not too bad. Any passenger vehicle could make it on the section we will be driving. My jeep is already full. Not sure how much room that biophase has for passengers but I'm suspecting that we will need a couple more vehicles.

Looks like I should look to rent a Jeep or a Forester or something similar.

I'll have to be careful to not beat it up too much, better pop for the extra insurance :rofl:

Hey guys, I'm also in town Thursday 8am until Sunday 6pm.

Down for a hike! If anyone's got space I'd love to tag along. Worst case, I can rent something and bring a few with me :)

Let me know what y'all think.

Thanks @Fox for starting this thread. We'll be arriving Tuesday 4th and leaving Tuesday 11th. Can you edit the first post with confirmed plans at the top?

Ideally I'd love to climb the mountain on Thursday before the summit but if the majority of people are down for Sunday then we should do it then.

So we have a rough outline of the plan.

Thursday 6th - Roadtrip?
Friday 7th - Summit
Saturday 8th - Summit
Sunday 9th - Mountain

* I would like to visit the Grand Canyon too during my time here. Either early in the week or on Monday the 10th. If anyone has any plans around this I'd be game.

* Not sure what the laws are like in Arizona but coming from Ireland I really would love to go to a firing range or just shoot guns in general. We don't get the opportunity to do that here.

* Someone mentioned that I shouldn't visit Phoenix without driving an ATV in the Desert. Anyone know anything about that before I google it!

Personally, I want to attend a Real Estate meetup if any are being held during my time in Phoenix. I have been in contact with a lot of different people on BiggerPockets and I'm making plans for that too. If anyone else is involved in RE I would love to chat during my time here.

I'll also probably be out at the bars one of the nights (If I can fit it in) as I have a friend from my city who now lives in Phoenix that I want to meet up with.

Thanks for all the great information so far. I'm really looking forward to meeting you all in person!

Make sure they allow you to take them on dirt roads.
From what I can tell all of the rental companies do not allow the vehicles driven on dirt roads. That includes the rental apps like Turo.

Is there an ideal way to bring water? Camelback or something?

Looks like I'll be taking the rental to a car wash

JK, I'll stay out of trouble & keep it on the road (mostly).

Idk if we will get a choice from 2 queens or 1 king bedrooms but I'm more than happy to share my room if you need one. I will arrive in AZ around 11:40am On Thursday (02/06/20) and leaving AZ around 12pm Sunday.
