What a treat to have such a trail out in the middle of nowhere to such a fantastic destination! We went in looking for certain succulent plants and were not disappointed. Only point of contention was the weather, as we hiked up into a wet misty cloud with some pretty fierce winds and temps in the 30s at the top. Oh well, once we were back down to 4500' or so, conditions improved markedly. As it was, we had driven my Jeep to the top of Harquahala a few days prior, so only felt a need to hike up to the ridgeline where the trail looks down upon the road at roughly 5100'. Trail is a little on the rocky side, but not complaining -- just really thankful that it's there at all! I'm sure we'll be back before too long.
