Peak 2433 is a prominent peak located on the bend of the bush highway near Saguaro lake and the turn off for Stewart Mountain dam. It has fantastic views of the surrounding area. It's an excellent off-trail peak to get your feet wet on or if you are looking for a challenge close to home. This peak is visible from Stewart mountain and also happens to be a peak on the list for Summits on the Air W7A/MN-120.
The hike is all off-trail with no water unless pools have formed in the drainage from recent rains.
The Hike starts from the Water Users parking area on the Bush highway. It is posted no parking for roughly a mile in each direction, so your best bet is the Water users lot.
Exit the lot and cross the Bush Highway. On the opposite side of the Bush Highway, you will see a double power pole with a clearing leading up to it. This is the first stage of the hike. When you arrive at the double pole, stay on the left side of the drainage. From here, work your way up the left side of the ridge overlooking drainage. You will eventually arrive at the first saddle. Continue along, keeping the drainage on your right, and keep going to the next visible saddle. After arriving at the second saddle, continue working yourself up the ridgeline. As you work your way up the ridgeline, you will encounter some short boulder fields. A few of the larger leg crushing ones are loose, so use caution. The false peak should be in view now. It has a substantial cairn on top. From here, the actual summit is a short hike. You have now arrived at the summit. Enjoy the views!
None to speak of at the peak.
You could, but I would not think it's popular.
