Overview
This 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 awesome views of the surrounding area. It's a good off trail peak to get your feet wet on or if you are just 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.


Warning
All off trail, no water unless pools have formed in the drainage from recent rains.


Hike
The Hike starts from the Water Users parking area on the Bush highway. For roughly a mile in each direction there is posted no parking 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 ridge line. As you work you way up the ridge line 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 very large carin on top. From here the actual summit is a short hike. You have now arrived at the summit. Enjoy the views!

Water Sources
None to speak of at the peak.

Camping
You could but I would not think it's popular.
