Some may ask- Why drive 150 miles round trip to hike only 1.3 miles total? :doh:

Because..
..The first time I hiked this ~4.5 mile round trip (7.5 hour with breaks) off-trail benchmark summit (on NYE-2011), hiking in from the recommended northeast TH side, I rated it a solid 5/5 and I knew that a now confirmed different hike approach with a much shorter hike distance from the West side alternate TH should also be a :DANCE: with more time to take-in the 360 degree summit views and it did deliver!

..Today was a beautiful 70+ degree February Arizona day to drive my semi-open Grasshopper Jeep up to this alternate West side Park/TH Start location. For any interested in this alternate West side approach, I entered this comment on the "information notes" for my now posted 2/10/14 GPS Route:
Note: It is not recommended to attempt driving "serious" 4WD and unmarked FR644 off of FR219 (hike it for 1.85mls to this alternate TH Start location). This 4WD route is safely recommended for only short wheel base modified vehicles, with full locker, 33" tires minimum, and experienced off-road driver.

..Brian had been looking forward to hiking this listed 6 point SOTA (Summits on the Air) Club hike to be the first to "activate" this SOTA benchmark summit and I was looking forward to joining him.

We spent at least two hours on this 5385 foot summit enjoying it all :D
