I just had to go hiking this morning to see if there was any running water. Very pleased with this short, easy hike.

What a hike! Whew, this is a nice hike. Be prepared for hand over hand climbing in some areas. The trail is well seen for the first half of the hike, but once you start the climbing portion it can be vague in areas. I lost the trail going up but soon found it again. There is loose footing throughout the mid-section of the mountain, so slow going will be your best bet. The views from above are spectacular. A hike well worth doing.
Don't forget to sign the hikers log (mailbox) at the summit.

Nice hike. Well worth the views. Bring plenty of water, you'll need it. For being a short hike, this one can be tough if not well conditioned.

I think this hike is a little more challenging than Camelback Mountain (via Echo Canyon). There isn't any trail to follow, so good trial finding skills are required to make it easier. I recommend this hike.

Well what can I say about this hike. I have been wanting to do this one for quite a while now and finally had the chance to make a go for it.
The trail starts off with a gradual yet steady incline to the base of the mountain, then makes a turn towards the east into a large open canyon known as the "Siphon Draw". As you travel east into the draw you'll soon encounter a large smooth area known as the "Basin". Here is where most hikers will take a lunch break and admire the views before heading back down, but for you higher elevation seekers such as myself, you'll press onward and will shortly approach the final accent towards the top via a steep and fairly rocky climb up the draw.
I personally don't think the hike is that difficult, but if you're not in good physical condition I wouldn't recommend going to the top. Just turn around at the "Basin". This is definately one of my favorite hikes.
