Unfortunately as a last-minute hike I didn't get a chance to re-read FLYING_FLIVER's triplog... so not only did we NOT have an appropriate container for the information at the wreck plaque, but we also missed out on the benchmark disk location.

However... the summit log (placed by Bob Packard in 1999) was present, inside a Nalgene bottle in the rock cairn at the summit. The only 'entries' since Preston (kingsnake) in September 2015 trip:
1. A business card with a photo of two hunters on one side and "Ugg Lee & me" written on the back dated 2016
2. An entry in the notebook by what appears to be a couple who were here in May 2018.
(I wonder if these folks found the log that FLYING_FLIVER said was missing and returned it to the summit cairn.)

But I'm getting ahead of myself just a bit...
On the road by 5:30 am, a quick 2-hour drive and we were soon hiking in the pines. Within the first 1/8-mile we had already scared up a half-dozen white-tails, and by 1/4-mile we added another four. Over the course of the hike we saw well over a dozen... but of course all were gone too fast for any photos.

The hike provided plenty of variety... grassy tread on the ancient mining road, tree-fall, narrow & rocky drainage, tree-fall, thickets of locust bush, tree-fall, smooth-rock drainage, tree-fall, manzanita, tree-fall, manzanita, tree-fall, pines, and of course tree-fall... and yes, negotiating fallen trees was THE worst challenge of the hike for me. Going over the lower trees wasn't bad, but with my back issues ducking under the others was a real problem... by the second one I would have a stabbing pain the rest of the hike. So from then on, while Tracey was still ducking under, I was pushing through brush to detour around them. It helped that deer, elk and even cattle had made some of the detours, but it didn't make it much easier.

When we reached the top of the Rose Creek drainage,instead of turning right immediately, we headed straight out to the plaque. After a quick glance we started up along the ridge but soon realized we better get over to the old road. In retrospect, we should have gone right back down to the plaque and re-trace our steps back to the turn... but, it looked there were enough openings in the manzanita to take a nice sort-cut, besides, I have my trusty titanium shears.
'Fraid not! ](*,)
Barely 30 feet from the getting back on track, we got so caught up in the manzanita it was time for the shears. I was stuck fast, trying to back out against-the-grain so Tracey had to get the shears out of my pack and hand them to me. And by time I managed to cut a path through the manzanita I had also cut through one of my boot laces. :x
Then again, most laces are far too long anyway... as long as they didn't come untied I was good.

But even back on-the-road the manzanita was so bad we were better off finding a route over the first peak instead of around it. No matter, it's just more AEG. Eventually we reconnected with a somewhat clearer portion of the road and continued more-or-less along it except when detouring more tree-fall and/or heavy batches of manzanita. I didn't realize it until later but did a fair amount of wandering around, and most of that was more climbing.

As alluded to in other triplogs, the summit provides no view other than a few open areas with trees sprinkled all around. But as I mentioned, we found the log in the summit cairn. More wandering around the top, taking in the views to the west and with the temp rising noticeably it was time to head back.

On the return trip we thought we'd see if there may be an easier route following closer to the road. Another mistake, more up & down along with more manzanita trimming, with a vengeance until reaching the top of Rose Creek drainage and from there on just a reverse of the ascent.

The highlight of the hike (for me, anyway) was an encounter with a 5 or 6-foot gopher snake. As usually happens when hiking with Tracey, I step over the snake without seeing it, but I disturbed it so when Tracey comes along she hears the snake rustling the leaves as it's moving, she looks down and sees this big fat snake and freaks out... screaming like a little girl, I mean high-pitched screaming. Although she'd never made such a ruckus even with rattlesnake encounters in the past, without even looking back, I knew a snake was the cause. And even though it wasn't an easy portion to walk through, she had no trouble running right by me yelling snake... big... snake!

So of course it's up to me to find out what it was... just a gopher snake, not quite as long as the 7-footer we encountered on Black Ridge some four years ago, but still a good size. I took a quick photo but by time I started a video it wasn't moving so just a touch of it's tail and I got an obligatory wide-mouthed hiss before it moved on.

The rest of the hike Tracey was having a bit of PTSD... every stick appeared to be another snake and any wisp of wind that moved the grass or leaves had her heart racing again. But she survived.

Not many photos this trip... with the early onset of pain ducking under trees I guess my heart wasn't really into it. Otherwise I'm sure I would have wanted to check out more along the edge of the cliffs, if nothing else to see where I had passed across hundreds of feet below while searching for signs of the wreck in April 2015.

(A bit long - Sorry about that)
(At least read the last portion about protecting the memorial paperwork).

Armer Mountain is north of Roosevelt Reservoir, and has a couple bits of unique history.

Timber was harvested there in the very early 1900s, for the purpose of building Roosevelt Dam. The harvesting went on for a couple years, and a rudimentary road was built to facilitate this endeavor. Now, over 100 years later, that mountain road is barely recognizable.

The other noteworthy event was a plane crash in the early 1950s. A military C-47 cargo/passenger plane crashed into the side of Armer Mountain, killing all twenty eight people onboard. After reading the accident report and a couple other detailed reports, my opinion is, this fatal accident never, ‘ever’, should have happened. It was totally preventable.
(Sorry for the soap box - I despise preventable, aviation accidents).

Kingsnake recently uploaded to HAZ, some info about a memorial plaque that was established next to the south-southwest cliff band, so I decided to go up and look around. That’s the area where the C-47 impacted the side of Armer.

Also, on the high point of Armer Mountain, lives a USGS survey triangulation station, appropriately named “Armer”.
Of all the Armer Mtn triplogs and photosets on HAZ, no one has mentioned seeing the Armer benchmark disk, so I continued from the C-47 accident memorial area to the top of the mountain. Locating a disk that’s in a boulder “flush with the ground”, in a pine forest full of leaves and debris sounded like a good challenge.

The first part of the hike starts on that defunct logging road (FS152) that mostly uses a drainage named Rose Creek. Once near the southern cliff band, the road makes a 90 degree turn, out of the drainage and works its way up the mountain. Yes, if you squint, you can see parts of the road - Part of the time. It’s covered in alot of vegetation now.

I actually did not use the road from the memorial site to the top of the mountain. Instead, I stayed near the cliff band, peering out and down, looking for wreckage. I saw none, and I didn’t think I would. The big pieces of wreckage were removed, and the rest is hidden in vegetation below the cliff band.
I did use the remnants of the logging road going down from the high point.

The accident memorial plaque etc, is a very nice tribute to the 28 “souls on board” that perished that fateful afternoon. The memorial looks rather new, and I hope it holds up for many years. Also, at the memorial, there’s a large zip-locked bag with many pages of good information about the accident, plus the ziplock has many photos for your viewing.

Yes, I located the benchmark atop Armer. Good for me.
The rocks for the cairn on the high point were scattered all over the place, and the known summit log is gone. I did re-erect the cairn, however.

========================

I have a favor to ask anyone going up Armer Mountain.

The large zip-locked bag by the accident memorial needs much better protection from the elements.
Please bring a waterproof container, large enough to hold folded or scrolled-up 8.5 by 11 paper, and put the paperwork & photos in the container. The way it is now, the paperwork etc will never make it long-term, with the zip-locked bag secured by just a rock.

Send me a PM via HAZ and I’ll give you detailed info on where the memorial site is located.
Also, let me know how much money the container cost you, and I’ll reimburse you the cost.
Thanks.

Enjoy the photos.

The featured plane this month on my Commerative Air Force (CAF) calendar is the C-47. I decided on this hike before I knew what the September plane was. So, every once in awhile I glanced up at it, trying to familiarize myself, so I might be better prepared for the hike, in which I hoped I might find the remaining wreckage. It was predicted to be 100° at the Tonto Ranger Station on Roosevelt Lake (el. 2000), while the Armer Mountain TH is el. 5800, and the summit el. 7310. So, I figured I would be dealing with ~90°. :-k

Ward #1 was having a camp out at the Sawmill Flats TH. A couple of young boys asked us to keep an eye out for their BBs. :A1: If it was anyone else, I would have been nervous leaving my wife behind. :)

While there was a fair amount of deadfall in the canyon, it was easily avoided. What was not so easily avoided was the grab & stabs. They were not normal Arizona catclaw-type grabbers, but large ripper vines covered with long spikes, just like in North Carolina's swamps. (A place I have some painful familiarity with.) I tried side sloping for about a quarter mile on the way up, but it was steep and loose and actually slower going than just bashing through the grab & stabs. By the end of the day, I looked like I had lost a fight with a bag of alley cats. :stretch:

It has been so long since anyone drove the "jeep trail" along the highline -- probably since the West Point C-47 crash -- that there are 12-foot manzanita's growing in the middle of the trail. (Manzanita seem to grow about a foot every five years, so the timeline fits.) There are two hilltops you have to work your way around before beginning the summit climb: Once you start heading west along the north side of the southern hill, the jeep trail clears up and becomes smooth sailing (on foot). Better yet, the hill tops provided much needed shade. :sweat:

I checked out some possible wreck locations, but all I found was a small piece of sheet metal. As it was rusted, and thus not aluminum, I doubt it belonged to the C-47. My search included two old trails south of the summit. Judging by posted routes, they had not been previously searched.

The official location of the summit log is ~70 ft. east of its actual location. (I measured with +/- 11 ft. accuracy ... according to my crappy Garmin 62S.)

From various points along Armer Mountain's highline, I could clearly see Thompson Mesa (~4 mi. away); Dutch Woman Butte (~7 mi.); Windy Hill, Rock Island and the marina on the south shore of Roosevelt Lake (~14 mi.); Four Peaks (~22 mi.) and even the copper mines in Globe (~28 mi.).

A hawk flew so fast & low over my head that his body -- not his wings, his body -- made a vibrating whoosh when he passed overhead. Sounded just like a baseball bat when it is swung real hard. Very cool. 8)

I accidentally turned off my crappy Garmin 62S while trying to adjust the illumination -- Garmin made the interesting decision to adjust illumination using the on/off switch :roll: -- resulting in a net AEG of outer space (59,791 ft.). (I removed the spike from my posted route, which is why it is in two segments.)

On the way down, I got rattled in the canyon. I was so tired, it took a few seconds before I realized what was happening. I never did see the snake.

Was exhausted, shirt white with sweat salt stains, covered head-to-toe in dirt, scratched all over & bleeding, when I made it back to the TH. I was spent. Only one family from Ward #1 was left, and their son came running over with an ice cold bottle of water. Wow, that was nice of them. :thanx:

I was cramping so bad on the drive back down AZ 288 that I had to pull over. The cramps continued into the night, so that despite being exhausted I barely slept. But I made it. :y:

Today we were lucky to follow in the footsteps of our hero, Preston Sands. Check out his excellent description for a good 4-5 hour hike.

I extended the hike into a loop tagging on Tanner Peak. The initial hike up is a bit gnarly. If it rubs you the wrong way then forget the loop. Once on top be sure to check out the western views on occasion!

Tanner looked like a blip on the pre-hike elevation profile. It was a bit more intimidating in person. Just take it in stride with a few rest breaks and it's reasonable. The top is okay. Just to the north on the rock outcrop was a surprising treat. This served as one of the best lunch spots I recall.

Continuing on to 7,231 & 7,142 the views kept rolling. Happy days came to an abrupt end heading down to finish off the loop. We knew it would be steep. The first layer of manzanita didn't totally defeat us... expected. The 65 degree slope continuing on plastered with a thistle convention and underlying fox tails took it's toll.

Bruce wasn't interested in the final leg of the loop. He gashed his hand, time wasn't on our side and we'd already had one heck of a hike so I didn't pester him... too much. Rather we road walked off the final third of the hike to wrap it up.

Nothing came easy, I found it to be very worthy.

Joe's turn to pick.... He gave me 3 choices to pick from. I picked this one, which I find out later was an after thought. This one is an addition to the Armer Mountain hike that famed HAZ'er, Preston the Yetti wrote up.

The climb up was not as bad as I'd expected, based on the previous trip reports. (Although I would recommend at least long pants.) It does follow an old logging road, that has long since grown over, but not all that bad to follow. This compared to what was to come later in the hike. Follow the grade, go around the growth where required to get back into the old road, and you'll be to the top in no time.

Your first spectacular views start at the 2.25 mile mark prior to reaching the Armer Peak. Wow

Once on top of Armer Mountain, we spent 20 or so minutes looking for any sign of the C-47 that crashed up there in 1951. I had conflicting information on its location. We checked areas west of Armer peak.

Next it was time to start our off trail adventures. Off to Tanner Peak. The climb up was not as daunting as it looked. When you get to the actual Peak, continue to the North for 20 or so yards. Probably some of the best views in the entire Sierra Ancha's. You have more that a 270 degree view from up there! Here we had lunch in one of the top lunch spots ever!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?edit=vd&v=PlqZVGK00nI


We dropped down Tanner and made our way up to the ridge line that connects 7231, 7142 and a lesser peak. The views once again were wundabah. Parts of this ridge line have burned in the past. The farther north we got on the ridge line, the thicker it got. There was remnants of an old trail that covered this ridge line. In spots there was a worn track and we found a couple 2' tall cairns buried under the Manzanita.

Now it was time to make our descent off the ridge line. We blasted through a couple hundred yards of Manzanita and dropped 800' in a half mile over a scree field grown up with Thistle and Foxtails, until we hit an old overgrown road. In the process I slipped gently coming down and used my hand to catch my slip. I was confused for a bit when I was not able to pick my hand up, finding that I'd impaled myself on a small burned branch.

From here we just decided to walk the old road to 188, and then back to the car.

On this hike I got used as a human shield twice...aka, let's play hide behind the old guy.
Once when Joe saw the Bear/Cow, and once when he heard a gun shot off in the distance.
Good to know who your friends are.

Most of this hike should go in the book.

I hiked this and spent the night atop Armer, there is a lot more fresh blow down trees from the recent winds. The wreckage of a C-47 transport plane is on the summits westerly mountainside 19 West Point cadets, four crew members and five other passengers aboard the plane died when it disappeared in a storm December 1951. It has been about 20 years since I last paid my respects to those lost here, I noticed that others are starting to build a small monument near the crash sight. If one attempts to investigate the crash sight, be carefull it is dangerous. There is several reports about the crash that one should be read before going. I would also read up on the Armer sawmill and other history about the mountain. It make for a much more humbling trip.

My son Luke and I hiked this trail. Man it is rough in spots! We were expecting it to be difficult but the overgrown creek bed sections were extremely fatiguing and I probably turned my ankle at least half a dozen times (time to invest in some real sturdy boots). Toward the end of the trail we veered left when we should have veered right and almost missed the summit, so backtrack we did, and were rewarded with some incredible views! Definitely a workout and slow going in spots but very dramatic summit area!

I drove into the Sierra Ancha, but couldn't decide between Armer Mountain or Pocket Creek. Flip of a coin. Heads: Armer Mountain. While hiking up the burned out canyon I considdered turning around. Well, maybe it'll get prettier... Once out of the canyon, it did. Nice views of the southern part of the range and green forest. The views from the saddle at mile 2 hooked me. There were a few small clefts in the cliffs at the saddle that I wanted to check for ruins. But, no time, and I just didn't feel like dying from a fall. I had 4 pm as my turn around time, summit or not. Made the summit at 4 sharp, and went over to the edge of the summit cliff to check out the incredible view :o Ok, the view made the whole hike worthwhile :) Made it down in an hour and 15 min, just at dark.

I hiked this mountain in August 07 and the prior year before that. This is a great close summer hike with killer views and lots of forest areas to explore. The elevation at the top is around 7,200 feet. The trail is preaty much terrible with everthing from deadfall timber, thorn bushes, and manzanita however the battle is well worth the effort. This is not a maintained trail but rather an old abandoned 4x4 road. If you like solitude and rugged terrian I definitely recomend this hike.

We took the old logging road up to near the summit then off trail to ledge with great view for lunch. The road is washed out in a few places.

First trip up here - found the old logging road and followed it up to near the summit. Explored off trail to the real summit and the ledges on the west side. Great views.
