Dress for the current and unexpected weather changes. Take plenty of water. Never go alone. Make an itinerary with your plan(s), route(s), destination(s) and expected return time. Give your itinerary to trusted family and/or friends.

    To hike
    From Phoenix, take I-17 North to Carefree Highway. Turn West on Carefree Highway towards Wickenburg. Approximately 5 miles past the main Lake Pleasant entrance, you will see a paved road (Quintero Lane) on the north side of the road. At this intersection, turn south instead, onto a dirt road with a green gate. Enter through the gate, making sure to close it behind you. Drive approximately 1 mile on the dirt road and park near the base of the small hill just west of Peak 2021.
