cdogAZ's 3rd highest  Sucess!

My girlfriend and I hiked up this peak many times during our time living and working in the White Mountains between 2005 and 2007. Really outstanding place to check out some aspen groves and beautiful country. Escudilla is one of the most impressive mountains of the southwest and was one of our favorites.

With Bill J., Elizabeth P., we were treated to stunning fall colors as we hiked up to the lookout and then a half mile beyond to the true highpoint. Elizabeth, who goes by the handle of Azbackpckr had just done the mountain a few days before. A great hike and as we found out on our return to our vehicle, a very popular one as we must have passed 50 people (and some horses) on their way up the trail .

This was a nice hike while heading out on a trip. Baldy to the west may be higher, and the states second highest mountain, but I had to use the fire finder in the tower to locate it. Baldy doesn't look like much, so in my opinion, Escudilla is the true summit of the White Mountains.

Camped at base of Toolbox Draw and heard elk bugling all night. Hiked up the main trail and got great views from the tower. We went over to the true summit and found the giant cairn in the trees, then hiked down the meadows and forests of Toolbox. Great day in the mountains!

My wife and I escaped the 118-degree heat of Phoenix for a cool weekend in the Whites. We camped at Alpine Divide and made the easy hike up the southern trails to the lookout, then from there to the big cairns on the north summit. Great hike, with beautiful grassy meadows up high.

Actual summit is kinda lame. Fire lookout is pretty fun in the wind!

Met the Forest Service Fire watcher in the tower. Very nice fellow, has been walking the 6 mile round trip for many years during fire season. I think he said he has walked 2,000 some odd miles on that trail.

In the region for mountain biking and decided to hike up Escudilla. Reached lookout tower with my brother on the 10th without realizing it is not true summit. Experienced marble-sized hail in late morning - earlier than expected.

Returned on 17th with my wife to introduce her to the area and go to real summit via Escudilla #308. Intermittant rain but in early afternoon. We then hiked up Govt. trail on 18th. Better workout but not nearly as scenic.
