    Quick hymasa / Ahab question

    Hi all - just wondering how long it would roughly take for a reasonably fit group to do the hymasa / Ahab loop ? Wondering about doing that and then climbing up again and doing rock stacker / Jackson's but I've no clue on how long it would all take. TIA.

    Quick hymasa / Ahab question

    For that route this spring (including Jackson's), my GPS track says 2:52 moving time, and a little under 15 miles. That was with the canyon mouth detour and wade. Total time will vary with fitness, temperature, and inclination to session features, obviously It always seems to take me longer thank think it will.

    If you're looking to save time, I'd skip Hymasa and climb the jeep road. Shorter and more fun, IMO.

    Yeah, I also prefer the jeep road up. If you are considering Rockstacker, your skills need to be up for it. Jackson's not as much, IMO. But, I've only done Rockstacker/Jackson's once.

    Quick hymasa / Ahab question

    I ride pretty technical, rocky terrain and have done the whole enchilada and mag 7 blue dot / portal with no issues. Just never ridden Amasa area trails.

    That's good. Rockstacker is a pretty good step up. No big deal, just thought you might like to know just in case you bring someone not as good as you.

    I've done Amasa a couple of times and was looking to hit hymasa on the way up instead of the jeep road next week on my trip. Is it not worth it compared to the jeep road?

    I like both, but the nod goes to the singletrack for me. Just a bit more interesting. It doesn't have some of the bigger ledge features of the road. Definitely worth giving it a shot.

    I like both options. You can also mix and match as Hymasa crosses the jeep road a few times.
