A fun climb in the Haluapai Mountians
by DixieFlyer

Peak 7720(elevation of 7,720' with a prominence of 280') is a summit near Kingman, in Mohave County. Peak 7720 is 0.75 miles NE of Haluapai Peak, the highpoint of Mohave County.

As described in the Hualapai Peak Guide, from the Potato Patch Loop take an old road toward Hualapai Peak. About half-way to Hualapai Peak, the road makes a near 90 degree turn to the right and continues toward Hualapai Peak. Instead of making this turn, look to your left and head off-trail up to Peak 7220. A good place to head off-trail is at or near these GPS coordinates: 35.07981, -113.88913

The ascent is about 0.3 miles. You'll be underneath some pinyon pines, and there will be some occasional vegetation that you will probably wish to circumvent. The biggest obstacle in your way will be several large boulders and rock outcroppings that you will want to go around, although it will be easier to just climb over some of them. I marked the highpoint atop some boulders at these GPS coordinates: 35.08144, -113.88730. However, if you walk around a bit at the summit you might find another boulder that is a bit higher.

Descend the same way that you came up, or be adventurous and find another route back to the road up to Hualapai Peak.

Red Tape
Peak 7720 is within the Hualapai Mountain Park, which is a Mohave County Park. For what it is worth, note that Peak 7720 is very near the park boundary, with BLM land being on the other side.

There is a daily fee per vehicle to enter the Hualapai Mountain Park.

This is not likely to be a hike that you'll want to make a special trip to the Hualapai Mountains to do. However, if you are hiking up to Hualapai Peak, you might want to bag this one on your way back to the trailhead.
