    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.
