I decided to make my first ever trip up to Mount Ord by starting at the Slate Creek TH.

The trail head was not the easiest to find -- going north on Highway 87 you have to go about 5 miles past the signed exit to Mount Ord. There is an unmarked turnoff next to a green highway sign that has the mileage to Rye, Payson, and Winslow.

This hike is much easier than the distance and elevation gain would suggest. I had hiked up to Mazatzal Peak 2 days prior to this hike, and this hike is much, much easier. The trail was easy to follow, and you could use this for a workout/fitness hike if you are so inclined.

The views at the top were awesome, but imho not as nice as the views on top of Mazatzal Peak. At one point on the hike, you could look to the east and see Roosevelt Lake, and look to the west and see Horseshoe Reservoir and Bartlett Lake. At the summit, you had a nice view of 4 Peaks and also of the Superstition Ridgeline (including Flatiron and Superstition Peak 5057).

I'll definitely endeavor to make this hike one that I do annually.
