Picketpost from the west is something any hiker in decent shape can do... Picketpost from the east? Well this one will separate the men/women from the boys/girls. You'll need good climbing skills (no ropes!) and plenty of stamina along with a willingness to travel up steep and at many times loose terrain that may slide with no prior warning. But for those who consider themselves worthy of a challenge (albeit a short one) it's a great way to see and experience awesome views from a completely new vantage point.
If you enjoyed the 4x4 drive to this trailhead, I'd recommend you continue on FR 4 all the way across to the east past Ajax Mine and out on SR 79 about 5 miles south of Florence Junction. (If you take this route you will need an Arizona Land Trust Access permit)

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