    To hike
    From Wickenburg, travel about 44 miles north on US-93. At the junction of AZ-97, (milepost 155) make a U-Turn across the divided highway and travel south on US-93 for about 200 yards. Turn right onto unsigned dirt road and proceed through closed gate. This road requires high-clearance and mandatory 4x4 in several locations even during dry weather. Follow this road for 5.2 miles and park adjacent to a sharp right turn at the bottom of a small hill along the wilderness boundary. (Note: from mile 0.7 to mile 3.25 the dirt road crosses State Trust land and requires a permit for recreation. The other parts of the road and the trailhead parking are on BLM land where no permit is required.)
