From the trailhead, start walking northeast towards the prominent Table Top Mountain. It may seem like a long ways away at first, but the distance passes quickly. There are several other smaller cinder cones around here. Follow the generally good trail as it heads through the classic Sonoran Desert wilderness. After about 2.5 miles or so, the trail reaches the base of the mountain. Follow the efficient trail as it switchbacks up the mountain. The trail ends on top of the 4,356’ south summit. The true highpoint is located on the 4,373’ north summit. There is no trail over to the north summit, although there is a faint path in places. You’ll have to drop down to a 4,200’ saddle enroute.
Hiking Distance: About 9 miles round trip.
Elevation Gain: About 2,400’.
