Syllabus
Peak 5822 - Iron Mountain Quad is a 1.4 mile round trip hike with 1,050 feet accumulated elevation gain. Located 33 miles east of Mesa Arizona. A high clearance vehicle is recommended to access the trailhead. April and October are the best months to enjoy this hike. This hike involes off trail navigation. Review triplogs, photos and the route to understand the terrain before heading out.


Overview: The first .2 mile follows an old service road to a small meadow. There is no trail from there so it's a matter of picking your way through a few open areas filled with cats-claw, then into thicker vegetation and finally larger trees interspersed with doses of Manzanita so it won't be an easy bushwhack by any means. But the views over the Superstitions are fabulous, especially across to Iron Mountain.

    To Rogers Trough Trailhead
    Take US 60 east out of Apache Junction. A couple miles past Florence Junction turn north onto Queen Valley Road and follow 1.6 miles. Turn right onto FS 357 (Hewlett Station Road) and follow about three miles to FS 172. Turn left onto FS 172 and follow this for 9.1 miles (keep an eye out to your right near the four mile mark for a thin arch) to FS 172A. Turn right onto FS 172A and follow 3.8 miles to the Rogers Trough trailhead. The last mile of FS 172A is definitely four wheel drive due to the washed ruts and some steepness. A high clearance pick up without four wheel drive could probably make it but you'd be in trouble if it rained. Be sure to stop and look over your shoulder. The views are awesome looking down in valley extending below.
