This is a hike to near the top of Summit Mountain where you can enjoy the expansive views. From the end of the trail you will find an excellent vista of the forest and rim country as it falls off to the headwaters of the Verde River and the distant Mingus and Bradshaw Mountains. Most of the trail was originally built in 1916 to access a fire lookout point. After some 50 years of abandonment, it was rebuilt in 1997 to offer an opportunity to enjoy the pleasurable walk to the top of the mountain.

Trail Layout: The well defined trail climbs steadily up 640 feet over its mile length through a forest of ponderosa pine, Gamble oak and alligator juniper.
