Likely In-Season!
Overview: This hike follows Forest Road 52B and FR 9403C up the south slope of Mount Tritle, to its 7782 foot summit. Along the way, one can enjoy spectacular views of the rugged western slope of the Bradshaw Mountains, cool forest, and old mines. This hike can be used as a connector between Mount Tritle and Mount Union.


The hike begins on FR 52B, continues up FR 9403C to the crest of Mount Tritle's western ridge, then turns east to climb to the summit of Mount Tritle, where one can enjoy an awesome 360 degree view. Driving as far as Mount Tritle's western ridge is possible, but not recommended, as a flipped over vehicle along the road can attest to.

    FR / Jeep Road - Car possible when dry

    To hike
    From the highway 69/highway 89 junction in Prescott, head west on Gurley Street to the stoplight at Mount Vernon Street. Turn left (south) on Mount Vernon Street (a.k.a. the Senator Highway), and drive approximately 12.9 miles to the turnoff for FR 52B on the right (FR 52B is 0.4 miles past the signed turnoff for Poland Road). Follow FR 52B (jeep road-car possible when dry at this point) for 0.4 miles to a signed road juntion in a saddle. Parking here is recommended, unless you have a high clearance vehicle. The road sign at the saddle indicates Lookout Mountain to the left, and Mount Tritle/Davis Dunkirk Mine to the right. Turn right, and go downhill toward Mount Tritle/Davis Dunkirk Mine. One can drive further on FR 52B, but the road becomes steeper, rockier, and narrower as it climbs the peak, eventually becoming a trail.

    Coordinates of the road junction in the saddle: 34.40979 N, -112.44236 W
