[CLUB] Perseid Meteor Shower & Night Run | EASY | Near Tonopah, AZ
Event created by 4x4tographer
Join me for a night run to experience the famous Perseid Meteor Shower from just under 6,000 ft atop the Harquahala Mountains, a noted dark sky site, on this fun Saturday night run!
If you're not familiar with Harquahala, it is a stunning and isolated mountain just north-west of Tonopah, AZ and is the tallest peak in southwestern Arizona. One of the major appeals of this mountain is the fact that you can drive all the way to it's summit to enjoy the views - no hiking needed! The trail is about 11 miles up and 11 miles back.
Our trip will include a daylight drive to the top where we will be able to enjoy sunset in one of the most beautiful areas in the state. Once the sun has gone down and the stars have revealed themselves, we will be treated by the Perseid Meteor Shower, which happens to peak that night. Once we've taken in the views, we'll do a fun night run back to the staging area.
Trail Difficulty: Easy
This trail "changes" all of the time depending upon wear/weather. By and large - this trail is rated as easy and any high clearance rig with 4x4 low-range will be fine. Note: the trail is STEEP in some areas and is an out-and-back ride.
TRIP DETAILS AND SIGN-UPS COMING SOON!
