After seeing this hike on hikearizona.com, we had to give it a try. It appeared to be a short, easy hike. We did have a few detours on the way up as I don't follow directions very well. The campground is closed and we had to slip past a few barriers from the hike description. After a few backtracks, we found camp site #64 where the well defined trail leads to the lower end of the climb up the massif. It gets pretty steep on the last tenth of a mile, but slow and easy up and down is the key. Coming down, we lost our cairns and come out at camp site #57 where there was another break in the fence and well defined trail.

This is a fun short hike and I would recommend it to anyone who wants a challenging short hike. It would be much prettier when the desert is blooming.
