i've been wanting to do this peak for a few weeks, but the drive to wickenburg seemed a little long for a 4.2 mile hike
so the east siders headed west to do this one and had a second hike in mind to make the drive worthwhile
took off from the lower trailhead just after sunrise and it was a little chilly to start
the first mile or so doesn't climb much
the trail winds in and out of some beautiful desert with vulture peak dead ahead
after the upper trailhead, the incline increases, heading up to a saddle
a short scramble from there, and you're on top
nice summit area with an ammo can sign-in
great views of the mountain ranges and the odd RV area
another peak that i would hike quite often if it was closer
