I didn't realize this hike was listed on the website. I wanted to explore the area to see if we could see both Saguaro Lake and Canyon Lake from a peak in this area. We saw Mailbox trail head in Ted Tenny's Goldfield Hikes and decided to begin from there. After parking in the area west of the Morman Flat dam road junction with Highway 88, we crossed the road and walked to primitive coarse rock maintenance road to the saddle. Reaching the saddle, I climbed the loose scree up the western slope to get views of Saguaro Lake and the dam. Not too exciting, I joined Kay to climb the eastern slope, where we found a trail to the peak and across the massif to great views of Canyon Lake and the dam area. Appears to be a great short club hike for our hiking group at Venture Out. By going to peaks on the left and right of the saddle, it extended the hike somewhat, but the best views are from the massif that Joe Bartles describes in his triplog. I can't wait to do it when the brittle bush are in bloom.
