To hike
From Mesa go east on US 60 past Power Road to Ellsworth. Head north on Ellsworth which eventually turns into Usery Pass Road somewhere north of McDowell I believe. Usery Mountain Recreation area where the trailhead is located is east of this road. It's not hard to find. Enter the park. Follow Usery Park Road 1.4 miles to the trailhead on the right.
