I know this hike is way off the radar for most people because of the drive, but it's really quite easy to get there. Once on the I-10/I-19 south, you only have to make one turn (onto Ruby Rd) to reach the trailhead.

The hike to the lookout is fairly straight forward, but getting to the peak is when the fun begins (besides the 100 yards of hell leaving the main trail). The mile of off-trail from the lookout to Atacosa Peak was pretty fun, and navigating through the boulders and srambling up to the summit made it a bit of an adventure.

I was the only one out there today, start to finish, not a single person. So if solitude is your thing, you'll enjoy it.
