Likely In-Season!
Rice Peak is a prominent bump along Oracle Ridge and the gateway to the easiest access to the Pinal County High Point.


NOT Pinal County High Point, see link above.


It can be accessed by driving a very difficult jeep trail from the Peppersauce Campground or it can be reached on foot from the same point, other spots along the jeep route, or from AZT#12.

Check out the Official Route and Triplogs.

Note
This is a more difficult hike. It would be unwise to attempt this without prior experience hiking.

Gate Policy: If a gate is closed upon arrival, leave it closed after you go through. If it is open, leave it open. Leaving a closed gate open may put cattle in danger. Closing an open gate may cut them off from water. Please be respectful, leave gates as found.
