Strenuous off trail hike
by MtnGeek

Likely In-Season!
This small mountain sits at the north end of Locket Meadow. Its elevation is 9,238, being the most miniature mountain in the San Francisco Peaks. It is a dull-looking lava dome that does not get much attention; not many people hike it. Most People go into Locket Meadow to hike into the Inner Basin. It is a steep climb that is well worth it. It has the best views looking into the San Francisco Peaks bowl.

You can pick any part of the mountain and head up through the open timber to climb it. The mountain is almost perfectly round, and any part of the mountain will be equally steep. The top is flat and gives lovely views.

    To hike
    From Flagstaff, go north on US 89 to Sunset Crater Rd. Do not turn right on Sunset Crater Rd. Turn Left. You will then be on a forest road. There will be a sign showing the direction to Locket meadow. From there, you will go straight to a fork then turn right. Once you hit the next fork, turn left. Keep going till you see a road off the right with a sign that says "Locket Meadow". Follow that until you reach Locket Meadow. Sugarloaf is the first mountain you will see on the left. Find a parking spot there.
