It is a predominant terrain feature in the eastern Superstition Wilderness area. Visible atop most peaks in the wilderness including 15 miles west along the Superstition Ridgeline. This excellent reference point is a great destination too for the semi avid hiker.
The peak can be reached by a steep semi cairned use-trail that follows a fence line. A southern approach from one saddle north of Windy Pass is another option.
Both ascents are steep and loose. The north has occasional pines in the lower portion and chaparral throughout to help stabilize your stance when needed. The mini Castle Ridgeline is fairly easy travel. Just keep a constant eye out for barbed wire on the ground!
