Chelsey McHale joined forces with Phoenix park rangers and Fire Tactical rescue personnel to discuss the importance of staying on the trail, ways to be safe on desert hikes and the situations that most of ten result in injury and rescures. Chelsey's brother Clint McHale set out for a hike up Echo Canyon Summit Trail on May 4, 2011. Unfortunately, he never made it home. As an avid hiker Clint decided that day that he wanted an extra challenge, he had no specialized equipment and was not prepared for the activity. While exploring a sheer rock face, Clint lost his footing and fell. He died from his injuries. Phoenix is home to tens of thousands of acres of beautiful desert – all just minutes from downtown, it’s no surprise Phoenix is one of National Geographic’s recommended best hiking cities.Trails & Hiking in Phoenix»
