This peak is south and east of Bylas on the San Carlos Indian reservation, about 120 miles from Tempe. This is a peak that can be seen from South Mountain, one reason because of its height at 8260 feet. From where I started, there was a rise of 5200 feet. There is no trail and I doubt that any reach the summit for several years. There are several reasons for this. One is that there is no trail. Another is that it is on the reservation and one needs permission, and the third is that is is probably the toughest summit in the state to reach. It took nearly two hours of ascending to reach its summit which is the reservation boundary line. My route was simple. Start climbing and head swiftly and directly as possible toward the top, avoiding thickets of brush, but not clifts. Returned the same route. Back in Tempe mid afternoon.

At the toolshed you have the option of turning left (south) and going to the southern overlook, which is awesome and it's only a few hundred yards from the toolshed. If you continue straight (west) at the toolshed, you walk across the mesa and end at the northern overlook. It's about 1.5 miles across the mesa. Fast hikers can easily hike to both overlooks.

First found this hike in Stream Side Trails guidebook. Did parts of this several times before attempting a full 20 mile loop with my mt. bike. Very exciting trek, carried the bike over half of the loop and came out in the dark. Spectacular sunset view from Skull Mesa. There are a lot of options for loops and out and backs. The Stream side trials guidebook has a lot of good trails but the beta on the trailheads has bitten me more than once.

I climbed Chiricahua Peak from this trailhead recently. This is more difficult than the route from Rustler Park. I started at Rucker Forest camp and climbed about 4000 feet in just under 10 miles to the peak. This route had some steep sections and took me 1:50. The return trip took me by Raspberry Ridge and I climbed Monte Vista peak on a side trip. This peak has one of the better views in the range. Descending from the peak about 3000 feet in 5 miles, and I was where I started. I think that this 17 mile loup, which took me under three hours, is one of the best loups in the Chiricahuas. Saw 2 bears; they ran away fast from my dog and me.

The road going up the mountain that stands out as such a visible scar is a testament to how fragile our desert environment is. I believe that 4X4 'joy' road was closed almost ten years ago and it will take many decades for it to 'heal'.

Some folks in the Gold Canyon area use Silly Mountain like a mini Squaw Peak. They go out in the early AM an run up and down a few times for a great little workout.

Actually Rustler Park is at 8900 give or take. The 13 miles round trip is pretty close. the top of Chiricahua Peak offers no view, unless it has burned since the last time I was there. The only reward is the climb and a sign advertising the southernmost place in the United States with Englemann Spruce. The crest trail is a pleasant walk. Past Fly Peak is Round Park which features wild iris in season. Under the clearing of Round Park is a water capture basin with impermeable rock underneath. In the wet season, the ground throbs like a drum if several hikers go thru together. Portions of the crest trail offer stunning views to the west, of the Sulpher Springs Valley, and the Dragoon, Huachuca, and Santa Rita mountains. About 1/3 mile before Chiricahua Peak is Junction Saddle, and a diagonal trail leading back the way you just came which leads to Anita Park, at 9500 ft. This is the best place to camp along the crest trail, with a reliable spring 1/8 mile down a side trail to the east. Between Junction Saddle and Anita Park is a bald hill with excellent views, a great place to watch the sun go down. During the monsoon season after it rains (oh yes does it rain!) the fog rolls thru here, and at dusk if you are quiet, you can sometimes catch a glimpse of Oso Negro (these are hispanic bears, close to the Sierra Madre) crossing over the saddle below you. Maybe several....If the wind is right, you can hear them sing, like the Wicked Witch's soldiers in the Wizard of Oz. They are coming for your Mountain House Stroganoff, and your oatmeal cookies....

Seriously, this is bear city. It is a good place to practice bear bagging and avoid anything olfactory in the tent, including the pants you wiped your hands on after making those peanut butter and sardine sandwiches. Relax, it could be worse, you could be back at Rustler Park where the campground bear is figuring out how to swat out someone's back windshield to reach the large steel coleman cooler full of Colorado coolaid. No fooling ! Don't leave a cooler in eyesite, put in truck or cover well, the bear learning curve is incredible here, and they have a taste for hops almost as great as mine.

South of Junction Saddle the crest trail forks with one trail going down to Rucker Lake at 6000 ft. and the other route traveling southeast to Sentinel Peak and options to Rucker Lake and Cave Creek on the east side of the mountain range, near the tiny town of Portal (which only needs cable tv and high speed internet to be heaven on earth).

What a country! Bears, coatamundis, parrots, spruce and aspen, only 20 miles from old Mexico, and a risk of snow dusting or hail above 9000 ft. in August. Even a chance of a glimpse of El Tigre, the jaguar. Give it a try!

I'd wanted to do this one for a long time, today I got the chance! This hike rocks! It has everything I'm looking for in a hike.beautiful views.bouldering.scrambling.a few water hazards..it was an excellent hike. We (Buffett and I) followed the canyon bottom on the way 'in'. What was great was the variety.you didn't do one thing for too long.a bit of sandy wash, and then, bang, some boulders that need climbing.a bit of slickrock, and then, here's some water for you! I completely enjoyed this hike.the water was crystal clear, and although it was warm today, the shaded areas were refreshingly cool. We followed the canyon for some time, exact mileage I have no clue, about 2 hours though. On the return, we followed more of a trail. It crossed the canyon bottom, would travel on either side of the canyon, sometimes going rather high on one side or the other. Although I have no clue really, I figured the trail we were following was in place for when there was/is water in the creek, since it carved back and forth on either side and crossed the creek bed a boulder areas. Again, just guessing here. This is a great hike! Can't wait to return.

As for the approach, having read other's comments, I opted to park at the top of the last hill.

The trail starts at Rustler Park in the Chiricahua Mountains which took me about 5.5 hours to reach from Tempe. I took the crest trail that climbs gently by Flys Peak and in under an hour reached the summit of Chiricahua Peak at 9700 feet and 2200 feet higher than the start. Returned the same way for a total of 13 miles and just under two hours.

We took this hike on Saturday March 10th, 2002. It was a very comfortable 81 degrees and we only went through 4 liters of water between the two of us. Unfortunately, we parked our car exactly 1 mile east of Tortilla Flat which was just a bit too far east. Rather than backtrack west down the wash before doubleing back to the east up the creek, we headed due south up and over the ridge just south of the highway. (When in doubt, head up.) It was rather slow going and steep coming down the southside, but it deposited us in tortilla Creek just east of the opening to Peter's Canyon which wasn't all bad. However, I'd seriously recommend simply parking at Tortilla Flat and taking the well marked trail just east of the parking lot. (You cut under a barrier going across the dirt road and follow the road down and around to the carins that take you up and over a hill to the creek.) This well traveled short cut saves a lot ot stumbling through the creek which at this point is just a bed of small rocks and easy to turn an ankle in. Additionally, finishing the hike at Tortilla Flat is a nice way to end the day as they sell cold beer. Once in Peters Canyon, stay high and on the east side where there is a trail which will avoid negotiating the VW sized boulders in the mouth of the Canyon. This 1/4 to 1/2 mile section of the trail is very overgrown with cat claw and I'd highly recommend wearing jeans as we collected quite a few scratches. After that, the trail is very easy to follow, (how do you get lost going up a creek- without a paddle no less?), and very pretty as the high walls close in on you. Peters Cave is easily recognized up the west side of the cliff about 2 miles into the hike. We went as far as the waterfall about a 1/4 mile past Peters Cave. Here the canyon really chokes down on the trail and it is very narrow. The falls were not flowing, but the pools were full of water. This scenic area necessitated a 1/2 hour stop for a late lunch. The only way to get past the falls was to scramble up a very narrow foot path high to the left. Watch your footing here as it is very steep and any fall will ruin your day. We had originally planned on going a little further down Peters Canyon before attempting to cut up and over the ridge to Tortilla Canyon, but I fear that this would have been very 'challenging' as this ridge appears to climb almost 1,000 feet in a 1/4 mile. Besides, we got a late start, (the Friday night poker game will do that every time), so we turned it around and headed back to Tortilla Flat for a nice 4 1/2 hour hike. (Did I mention that they serve cold beer at Tortilla Flat?) Some older snowbirds we met along the way pointed out the short cut trail heading over the hill to Tortilla Flat and it was a good thing as we would have missed the small pile of carins on the west side of the creek. After we got to Tortilla Flat, we had to walk down the road a mile to the car, but that was 15 minutes we won't count as it was due to stupidity.)

Oops, forgot to post this one for a couple months. We did this in January.

This trail is definately a favorite! The terrain varies so much and the views are so awesome that it keeps you intrigued the whole hike. I love scrambling up and around big rocks and there are many rockslide formations from the steep canyon. It makes you wonder what a slide like that looks and sounds like. You wouldn't want to be around then or when its wet. We ran into a few puddles and green oasis areas. We appeared to be the only ones there except for the campers we saw on the way in. My GMC Jimmy scraped at the same place as in the description and 4-wheel drive was a must! 4-Wheelin in the sandy river bottom was fun. Actually the whole drive from Hwy. 60 was very enjoyable.

I hiked this on 3/9/2, with the side trip of taking the left fork (aka
getting lost) and heading towards the first set of cliffs. Required some
cross-desert scrambling, as well as negotiating a cool dual-wash right before
the base of the cliffs. From this base, looking up and SW, there are two
natural arches, as well as countless alcoves. Game trails around the base
led to access to the ridge, and the walk to the peak is easy. This peak is the
north end of the mini-flatiron type hill that is more easily viewed on the
return from the falls. Even in 70*plus sun, the cool breeze from West Boulder
Canyon was refreshing. A nice hike with no hard climbing. As an addendum, within 5
mins. of hitting the trail, there is a spur going off to the left (East) that
looks like it would lead up to a large alcove or two. I guess I will just have
to go back and check it out :-)

This is a well worn trail in the Pinaleno mountains that starts at the Arcadia campground which is about 20 miles from Safford. It climbs steadily for about 4 miles then a branch climbs another mile to the top of 10.022 foot Heliograph Peak, a typical summit in these mountains with poor views. At this point you have gained 3000 feet and five miles. This took me just over one hour. I then decided to descend, not by the trail, but took a dirt road that in a mile lead to highway 366, and followed the road all the way back to the start(another 12 miles) It took a total time of 2:37 and the total elevation gain is 3500 feet and a distance of 17 miles. In this area, one could hook up with other trails and take longer day hikes or backpacks.

Although you will see Picket Post Mountain named
either way, I believe it is correctly spelled as two separate words.  This is
shown on an old foundation dated 1917 next to the mineshaft at the
beginning of
the hike.  The mountain
earned its name during the 1870s when it served as a lookout post (called
a "picket") for Gen. George Stoneman's infantry troops headquartered at nearby
Camp Pinal.  It was the "Old Military Trail" that supposedly connected this Post
with Fort McDowell in the present day Fountain Hills area.

 

The paved section of road
just before the trailhead is indeed the old alignment of highway 60.  One can
just imagine an old Model "T" trundling along on the verge of overheating with
every hill.

 

Some Internet hiking sites
put this hike at up to 6 miles round trip, but 4 miles seems closer to reality. 
It is a very
nice hike and
Mrs. Fritzski,
AzScrapper, and I did the left trail up and the right one down as Joe
suggests.  We really enjoyed the
unique climbing
features and
views. 
Definitely a lot of "bang for the buck!"

 

A couple interesting
observations:

You probably can't help but
notice the cement poured at the top next to the mailbox (which, by the way,
desperately needs a small pad of paper if you happen to be on your way), but if
you look really close you will also see some rocks cemented in place and little
cement foot holds poured in the
smooth rock
basin area. 

You'll also encounter a
small "cholla
forest" on the way down, but it is solely of the "Teddy Bear" variety, which
is much less common in this area than the ubiquitous "Chain Fruit".

Ck1, read how fast you made it to the top and timed ourselves against you. Ok, you beat us. But Joe says the AVERAGE is 3-4.5 so at 4.5 we were within the average, whew. I held up the trio for short rests but was able to conquer the Mtn! Thanks Mr. and Mrs. Fritski for taking me on this exhilerating hike. There's something about reaching a summit thats just so cool.

Its a trail with many types of terrain. A few scary drop off-type spots and a bit of scrambling which I really enjoy! The rock piles and views are great. I would encourage any one who really likes hiking to give it a shot. Look for Fritski report for the pics. I forgot my camera card for my digital. That'll be the last time I do that!

Hiked the trail on Thursday 28th Feb 2002 with my wife (Anna Lef). The path to the arch departed R from the main canyon trail at some trees in a dry wash bed and was marked by small cairns. We ignored other paths which branched off earlier. Through the trees at the cairns we could see the arch up on the hillside so we knew we were in the right place.

About 1/3 of the way up it seems like the path jogs right to some redrock ledges which indeed lead easily up. In hindsight we should have carried on straight, as going over to the ledges and up put us way to the R of the arch. We did a horrible bush-whack L to get back. From under the arch (cool) a trail goes R to a corner which we easily climbed up to a large ledge which led back left onto the top of the arch.

We liked the arch. It was easy to get to, scenic, and fun to climb on top of. The rest of the Canyon was nothing special.

Hiked the South Wilson trail with my wife (Anna Lef) on Saturday March 02 2002. Overall this was a nice hike, pretty quiet, and one of the harder ones in the area.
Some observations (times, conditions etc):

From Midgeley Bridge to the very end of the trail (5.6 miles) took us exactly 3 hours. This was made up of (1) 1.5 hours to the first bench (2) 1 hour from the First Bench to the FireTool locker (3) 0.5 hours for the 1.5 miles of flat hiking to the end viewpoints.
We found the trails that we were on to be very obvious. However _which_ trail to take at the FireTool locker was not so clear. The HikeArizona book says go straight ahead (which we did). You could also turn left or turn right from the shed. Don't know where these go, and there were no signs. From other posts here, it seems like turning left would put you on a high ledge with great views in the Sedona direction (South). The way we went (straight, 1.5 miles to the end) will get you to amazing views on 3 sides (North, West, and East).

The hike up to the first bench is tedious but great views. Once you get in the trees after the first bench there are no views until the end. You're in the trees for over an hour. Great shelter (no wind) but nothing to see. It was bitterly cold at the top even in the trees. Small patches of snow high up but didnt have to hike through any.

Took us 2.5 hours to return, for a total of 5.5 hours round trip.

We only saw 4 other people on the hike.

I too would like to hike Ballantine trail to Cline Cabin. On Jan 20, 2002, I hiked out to Rock Tank from the Pine Creek Loop trailhead - about 7.5 miles one way. According to my maps, Rock Tank is at the eastern end of Ballantine trail and at the north end of the Pine Mountain Trail at whose southern end is Cline Cabin. Actually, I never found Rock Tank, though my GPS told me that I was within a few hundred feet of it. The trail becomes quite overgrown at this point and it will be likely be difficult to continue on to Cline Cabin. I plan to (sometime) hike from Cline Cabin to the vicinity of Rock Tank to see if I can find a way through from the other side. If I can, then a day hike from the Pine Creek trailhead to Cline Cabin might still be a possibility.

This trail starts at the Round the Mountain trailhead in the Pinaleno mountains near Safford. Round trip is about 12 miles, and 3000 feet of elevation gain. I went up the steep rocky trail that follows a high scenic ridge to meet the Arcadia trail and then descended to the Arcadia campground, where one could be picked up by vehicle, and took the highway back about 4 miles to the start. This took me 1:20 of steady climbing to the Arcadia trail and 53 minutes back to the start.

This trail is in the Pinaleno mountains near Safford and is about 6.3 miles long and rises over 4000 feet. One can go one way and get picked up from the highway or retrace your route back down. I went up the trail to the top at about 8600 feet and then down the highway nearly 7 miles back to the start. It has great views of high points in the Pinalenos and north to the peaks of Dos Cabezas. Some people drive up and hike down. I took 1:30 up and about 50 minutes down. There are plenty of trails to do in this area.
