Hiking and Mountain Biking During Summers in Phoenix

Hiking and Mountain Biking During Summers in Phoenix

 
Summer Hiking & Mtn Biking in Phoenix AZ
The Wild Bunch Desert Guides want to deliver your best-ever vacation adventure, and that means guiding you along the correct path every step of the way.
 
So, every year between June 1 and Oct. 1, the Wild Bunch join the entire Arizona adventure tour industry in adopting special summer hours.
 
The reason is simple. The summertime heat in the Valley of the Sun dangerously skyrockets to triple digits. Vigorous physical activities in those Sonoran Desert temperatures should be avoided.
 
So, to safeguard our guests from the risks of dehydration and even more severe heat-related illnesses, the Wild Bunch limits start times of guided hiking and mountain biking adventures during the heat of the Arizona summer.
 
That means for guided half-day hiking or mountain biking adventures (3-4 hours), whether going solo or in a group, the start time must be 6 a.m. -- with a 5:30 a.m. pickup.
 
For 90-minute to 2-hour guided hiking or mountain biking, whether going solo or in a group, the LATEST start time is a 7 a.m. "meet at the trail" option. The LATEST pickup time is 6:30 a.m.
 
The hiking or mountain biking tours are certainly welcome to start earlier if desired to help avoid the heat.
 
Starting early enough to witness a gorgeous Arizona sunrise is an accommodation the Wild Bunch can make -- just understand that any pickups are half-an-hour before any adventure start time.
 
Otherwise, these special summer start times are NON-NEGOTIABLE for later in the day because the temperatures normally become too hot after 10 a.m.
 
Sunset tour options are limited as well and completely dependent on any pottery kiln-level temperatures. Please call (602) 663-0842 for possible Sunset tour meeting times.

For Camelback Mountain hiking, that means start times of 6 a.m. (online) or earlier (if guests call direct to 602-663-0842) from Monday to Friday.
 
Any Camelback Mountain hiking on weekends (Saturday or Sunday) requires a call to book (602-663-0842) due to the popularity.

There are no "2X The Fun" hiking and mountain biking combo tours available, because that experience cannot start early enough to avoid the treacherous heat after 10 a.m.

The 2X The Fun" combo experience returns Oct. 2.

I had an amazing desert mountain biking ride with guide Rebel. She was so knowledgeable about the history of the area and was able to tailor the difficulty of the ride to my ability. I was pretty exhausted after the ride -- but in a really good way. I highly recommend using Wild Bunch Desert rides. Highlight of my stay in Phoenix.

I spent the day adventuring with Laurel. She is super fun, personable, engaging and a straight shooter. She is on the ball at tall times. We experienced things today one could never imagine. Excitement follows her. You will not regret hiring Wild Bunch for your adventures.
