Overview
Government Hill is a 0.97 mile one way hike with 568 feet accumulated elevation gain. Located 39 miles east of Mesa Arizona. A high clearance vehicle is recommended to access the trailhead. October and April are the best months to enjoy this hike. This hike involes off trail navigation. Review triplogs, photos and the route to understand the terrain before heading out.


Government Hill is a modest peak in the Eastern Superstition Mountains that can be reached via an off trail route from Paradise Trail, or Bull Basin Trail. The nice little peak offers some great views of the surrounding area, is relatively easy to reach and is featured in the eastern Supes edition of Jack Carlson and Elizabeth Stewart's Hikers Guide to the Superstition Mountains. There is a benchmark and register on the summit.
