We parked about 2 miles below the gate as the road was quite rough and we decided to just walk. The road up from the gate is steep but it's short and quick. Views were incredible.
Walked the road to the towers and then up to the top. Fairly easy but a long drive back and forth from PHX in a day.
It was a hot, dry day in March...
Parked at waterfall on south fork of Falls Springs Wash. Hiked up the west ridge directly to summit.
Gated at 3200 on road in from west. This road leads to towers near top, where good use
route takes you to apex. Hiked up with Guy.
A nice hike up the road to the towers, and then a pleasant stroll over to the summit. I parked about a mile below the first gate, and the round trip took ~2hrs. I think the distance I hiked was probably only 6-7 miles.
Went up wrong road 1st try, came back next morning to do it properly. Nice hike. Buzzing generator at towers was a turn-off, but the views were outstanding.
An impressive desert peak towering high over the Colorado River.
