actual product

Hikers---just a reminder that I'll be handing out free samples of Post Grape-Nuts Fit cereal on Flagstaff's O'Leary Peak this Saturday.  In addition to the goodies, this trail features over-the-top views of Sunset Crater National Monument. So---what's keeping you at home?

DATE:  Saturday, May 25, 2013. NO RSVP---just show up and start hiking. 
TIME:  we'll be on the mountain from approx. 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.
LENGTH:  10 miles roundtrip
ELEVATION: 6956' - 8916' 
RATING: moderate-difficult (you are responsible for your own gear and safety, this is not a sponsored hike)

GETTING THERE:
From Phoenix, go north on I17 to the I40 interchange in Flagstaff.  Head east (go right) on I40 to exit 201 for US89 north.  Go roughly 10 miles north on US89 and turn right at the sign for Sunset Crater National Park (FR545).  Follow this road 1.5 miles and turn left at FR545A for O'Leary Campground.  Continue 0.3 mile to a free parking apron at the summit road gate.  Do not park in the campground---unless, of course, you plan to camp there and pay the fee.
