You have one head for thinking,
One head for having fun.
I believe in that old saying,
Two heads are better than one.


I hiked up to Elephant Head last month, but did not hike to Little Elephant Head. I decided to go back down there and do both Heads this time!

We started from the TH is Agua Caliente Canyon, which is the south approach to Elephant Head. We did Elephant Head first, and then on the way back we hiked up to Little Elephant Head.

It was a fun scramble up to Elephant Head, and the views at the summit were great.

The hike up to Little Elephant Head was tougher than I thought that it would be, although part of that was just having done Elephant Head, and it was a sunny day that was much warmer than normal. There were 3-4 false summits on the way up to Little Elephant Head, so we'd have to gain some elevation, only to give some of it back. The views on Little Elephant Head were just as good as those on Elephant Head, so we enjoyed being at the summit. The air in Tucson seems much cleaner than in Phoenix, and the only place where we saw haze/smog was when looking down to Nogales.

I enjoyed this hike, although it was tougher than I thought that it would be.
