Tracie and I were in Flagstaff for the weekend and we decided to bag a peak that we hadn't done before: Schultz Peak.

We basically followed the GPS track that MountainMatt uploaded in June of 2017. Due to some road closures in the area, we drove in on Elden Springs Rd(FR 556) and parked before the closure area. Then we hiked off trail east of the closure area up to where the MountainMatt route started, near Schultz Pass Rd east of the Gas Pipeline.

It was a steep climb up to Schultz Peak -- on the way up we climbed 2,000' in about 1.5 miles. The footing was good, but there was a fair amount of deadfall to negotiate on the way.

It was fairly level on top of the Peak. There were some nice views on the way up and down, but there wasn't much to see on top. We stopped by High Tank, which was a big mud hole and 1/4 full. The views on top weren't all that great, although we had a good view of Doyle.

On the way back we diverged from the MountainMatt route a bit on the lower part of the descent to take a slightly more direct route to where we parked.

This hike was a good workout and was kinda fun, but the views on top were nothing to write home about.
