This hike is off from the Leupp Road east of Flagstaff. I didn’t think to get name of the Forest Road where you turn off Leupp road. The GPS coordinates for the turn off are 35.268108, -111.383154. The road crosses FR 244 and ends in a loop. I parked where the loop meets and started up an old road that is washed out. Evidently this is a popular place for target shooting and I got a little worried about where I was at in relation to the person with the firearm. The hike starts out steep and then flattens a bit. At about 1/3 of the way up the road turns into a very steep incline and it’s two steps forward and one back through cinder. It finally crests and then there is a faint road at the top heading along the ridge to the east. This road quickly fades and it’s bushwhacking for the last half of the hike. This is easy going as you follow the ridgeline around to the east and then curving back to the north. There was a bunch of brush stacked at the top in what appeared to be a makeshift blind. There was a lot of dear sign which lead me to that conclusion. It’s about a mile hike each way.
