Paul McClellanPleasant Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 14, 2014

Paul McClellan

Hiked from the gate to the summit and back. Was hit by some hail and light rain/wind, but this made the short hike an "alpine" experience. The road can be a bit muddy when wet.

Easy one after a long drive from Globe and Aztec Peak. Afterward, we headed for Flagstaff and a date with Kendrick Peak the next day. Sacha Bobst was my companion on 7 summits during this trip.

Dartmouth HikerA "normal" summer's day  Sucess!

Parked at the junction with FR-27 and walked the remaining 2.5 miles to the top. Up here in the pines and undergrowth, I felt like I was back in New England on a typical summer day! At the summit, the couple manning the lookout tower graciously invited me up; they were quite nice, though not so much the case with their dog! Views were expansive, especially from atop the tower. On a clear day they'd be superlative, but the monsoon season has brought with it pesky haze, limiting views to 50 miles or so. I may come back here again in clearer weather and on a luckier day...

The road was fun to drive, we saw lots of birds, some deer, and lots of great views. Was nice and cool compared to Phoenix too.

A gate kept my laziness from propelling the car to the top. Nice views of Four Peaks and Mazatzal.

Very green up there as a result of the monsoon storms. Slopes were speckled with orange from the agave stalks. Very impressive view from the summit and very quiet up there. Few cars and ATVs, probably less popular in mid-summer.

I drove up the dirt road to the gate while watching some dark threatening clouds begin to fill the sky. After a quick run to the top and a few minutes admiring the ever-changing sky I headed back to the car and began the drive back to the interstate and eventually the airport in Phoenix.

Had 100-mile views in all directions. I could make out peaks out toward Gila Bend, Tucson, the San Carlos rez and atop the Mogollon Plateau. Amazing.

experienced sun, rain and snow. a very easy walk. most impressive view was a few miles before the summit in the valley to the north. I watched the weather move in with such force it truly was a thing of beauty.

Beautiful fall day. The view from the top is pretty impressive. I wish more people would walk up, at least some of the way, instead of running their vehicles up there.
