To hike & climb trip
Exit I-10 on Salome Road (exit 81) about 65 miles west of downtown Phoenix and travel south across the freeway. Make an immediate right onto Harquahala Valley Road heading west. In half a mile, Harquahala Valley Road makes a sharp left and heads due south. Continue south for 5 miles to the signed intersection of Courthouse Road (heads east) and Centennial Road (heads west). Turn right onto Centennial. Follow Centennial for 6.5 miles and turn left onto a small unmarked dirt road. Follow the dirt road south for 0.75 miles until you reach the chain gate across the road and park here. Harquahala Valley Road is paved, Centennial is very smooth graded dirt, and the final 3/4 mile on the unnamed dirt road is possible in a sedan, but most will prefer high clearance.
