OverviewMohon Peak is the highest point in the Mohon Mountains. This prominent desert peak is located in a remote corner of Arizona, and is far off the beaten path. Like many desert mountains, it tends to fade away into insignificance against the desert landscape. Mohon Peak is a virtually unknown mountain. Little information can be found about it on the internet, or anywhere else for that matter. But the new field of Prominence has made Mohon Peak a more important mountain. With a prominence of 2,059', it's just big enough to make an appearance on the Arizona Prominence Map.
Getting ThereFrom US Highway 93 a few miles north of Wikieup, turn off onto either Upper or Lower Trout Creek Road. Both roads converge a few miles in. Drive in a few miles, where you will reach the intersection of Bogles Ranch Road and Upper Trout Creek Road.
Start heading east on Bogles Ranch Road. The road goes up and over the Aquarius Mountains. After you crest the Aquarius Mountains, you will see Mohon Peak off in the distance for the first time. It’s not visible from Highway 93 when you turn off the highway. 12.8 miles from the Bogles Road/Upper Trout Creek Road intersection, you will reach a signed intersection with Wagon Bow Road. Turn left here onto Wagon Bow Road, and drive 0.9 miles to the signed intersection with Wagon Bow Trail. Turn right onto Wagon Bow Trail, and drive 1.7 miles to the signed intersection with Torok. Turn left onto Torok, and drive 0.4 miles to the signed intersection with Great Western. Turn right onto Great Western, and start driving generally north on the main road. You will be driving past lots in the Antelope Canyon Estates housing development. The main road winds its way north through some drainages, and ultimately heads for Little Mesa Tank. There are several intersections, but you want to stay on the main road. After 5.0 miles, we passed by Little Mesa Tank and reached our parking spot at about 4,800'. The road was in generally good condition, but you will still want a high-clearance vehicle. The BLM map I had showed a checkerboard of public and private land around here.
