Oh it's been far too long since I have done Rincon Peak. This hike is such a winner! The only draw back is the long drive from my house.

Today I had the place to myself from start to finish. Perfect weather and trail conditions were excellent. Along the way I saw an Arizona Black in the Grass, a HUGE Bull in the Bush, and a Baby Diamond Back sleeping right in the middle of the trail.

Other than that just an enjoyable trip up and back down. As for the road in, it is in good shape. Any high clearance should have no problem. Passenger cars can make it with cautious driving. That said I pulled a Ford Taurus out of the sand that got stuck while fording one of the creek crossings. Lucky for him I keep a tow rope handy. :lol:
