Overview: Peak 4008 is located in the Picketpost Mountain Quadrangle in Pinal County, just west above FR650. With a rise of 468' and an elevation of 4088' it ranks #4201 for the state of Arizona. Its summit coords are: 33.3508 -111.1445. From the FR650-2374 TH it's just a steep climb up a rocky seldom-used Forest Road until you reach the upper TH. From that point it's a pretty easy walk up a beaten path to the summit.

    Steep climb over a lot of loose rock up FR2374 then south to the summit. Another cold hike, but being 1700 feet lower than the first hike this morning it felt much warmer and I was able to shed a few layers. Although the peak itself is nothing but a rounded bump, the views were great.

    To hike
    Take US60 east to the first LEFT turn AFTER the Picketpost TH exit on your right. This road is FR357, the east access to Hewitt Station Road. Almost immediately turn right onto FR8 and go 1.8 miles to the FR650 intersection. Turn left onto FR650 and go 1.8 miles to FR2374. If you don't have a very capable 4x4, this will be your trailhead. Otherwise you can drive up the steep and loose rocky F2374 .8 mile to a flat spot to park.
