First time hiking in the Estrellas so Quartz Peak seemed like a good hike to start with. We took the south access through Maricopa starting around 9am. Cold, overcast and a little breezy at the start. Still really enjoyed the ridge line heading up to the summit with great views the whole way up. However, once we reached the summit it was 45 degrees and wind was howling so we didn't stay long. We also decided not to hit Butterfly Peak with the wind blasting the main ridge. Heading back down the conditions were much better and enjoyed the rest of the hike. Going out I decided to take the north access just to see the difference. Definitely recommend what others have said and take the south access.
