Beautiful climb but forgot my windbreaker so was a tad chilly on the way back to trailhead. Made it to the summit!
Decided to check out a part of the McDowell Sonoran Preserve I hadn't gone to yet. I kept taking less busy trails to avoid the people until finally I caught the summit trail. Decent little climb and I had he summit to myself. Ate some fruit, took a video and started back down.
Newly-opened area for hiking. Enjoyed the hike to the top and the views. Worthy little peak and hike.
Not too hot. Did Cone Mtn first, and then took Upper Ranch Trail to Brown's Mountain.
