TRAIL GUIDE INFORMATION: Informaton provided is this condensed guide includes the following::  directions to hiking trail, length of trail, initial elevation, elevation gain, average hiking time, and difficulty.  See the individual guides provided below for a description of the hike, a Topo map of the trail, and pictures taken along the trail.   JMJ                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

These guides are not a substitute for your experience, physical condition or common sense.    
The users of these guides assume full responsibility for their own safety.     
       
Hiking in the back country is not without personal risk.  Although I have made the trail  descriptions in these guides as 
accurate as possible, some discrepancies may exist between the text and the actual trails in the field,
and individual interpretations of the trail descriptions may differ from those of the author.  I pursposly have kept the
length of these hikes down to about 6 miles.  Some of the rails are much longer.  You have the option of making 
your hike shorter or longer if you wish.  Also several of these hikes are interconnected, so you can join them to make longer hikes.
Difficulty varies depending on personal factors such as age and  physcial condition; and environmental factors such
as steepness of slopes, fallen trees or boulders blocking the trail, water running across or own the trail from snow melt
or sudden monsoon thunder storms,  and loose sand, gravel or rocks scattered along the trail.  
               
Always carry a first aid kit.  From late spring through early fall carry a poncho because of the possibility 
of unsuspected thunderstorms.  Use sun screen to protect sensitive skin from the intense sunlight   
encountered at these high elevations.  Use insect repellant to protect yourself from biting insects and 
ticks.  River sandals or something similar are handy for stream crossings and when you encounter water 
running across or down the trail.  Carry yaktraks when there is the possibility of snow or ice on the trail.
Wear layered clothing because of rapid changes in temperature.      
       
Respect the trail and its environment.  Stay on the trail.  Walking off trail can cause serious and long lasting 
damage to the ecosystem.  Take pictures but leave the trail and surrounding environment as they were.
