Hiking in Picacho Peak State Park

Today called for our 1st hike up Picacho Peak for the year. This 3-mile hike up Hunter Trail to the summit is so much fun that this will mark our 5th adventure there!

Husband going down my favorite part of the hike! It’s a whole different, slightly torturous, experience going back up this section.
