Author Full Detail Guide
Granite Knob is the primary landmark in the Apache Creek Wilderness. Summiting requires a steep off-trail hike and class-3 scramble through dense manzanita before a 15 foot section of class-4 climbing to gain the summit. Of the eleven peaks or mountains in Arizona with the name "Granite" this is the only knob.

Check out the Official Route.

Note
This is a moderately difficult hike.
