City high points

Post by chumley » Oct 25 2018 8:48 pm

In a recent discussion I was intrigued to figure out the high points of populated Arizona cities.

I’ve been too lazy to look it up. So I’ll ask HAZ.

Highest point in city limits of:
Phoenix
Tempe
Mesa
Scottsdale
Carefree
Cave Creek
Gilbert
Chandler
Peoria
Glendale
Surprise
Payson
Prescott
Tucson


Might need to be a new mapped area....

I believe that AZ law treats it differently wrt whether or not there is a No Trespassing sign posted

Here is a meetup group that apparently didn't get the message about Butte Peak being on private property:
