White tanks only opens at 6am if planning for a sunrise hike you may have to start from the gate but Goat Canyon Trail is not that much more of a walk. Trails are marked very well in White tanks but once you get to the wash its off trail and on your own but its not to difficult. Furthest west point of the Goat Canyon Trail you enter the wash straight through until you reach the service road. The service road winds to a few different viewing spots that are amazing. This service road hits various locations from Verrado up to Barry Goldwater. Other service roads also lead to other high peaks phone usage is available 60% -70% of the trail. When reaching near the top stay to your left on the service road and follow to the top.

This was a pleasant little hike with the pups today. I had been meaning to do the peak since the White Tanks popped up on my radar in the spring and today proved a good day to do it.

We got an early start and the temps were cool most of the day and the trails were fast and nice for the most part. It wasn’t the best day for views and the White Tanks are a little drab right now, but I still enjoyed the relatively close to home alternative. A good way to pad some stats and a add a peak late in the year (those things are important to Blanco). Overall it was a nice day and a decent hike, you could say it was a Barry Merry Christmas..🎄🎁

Second trip up to Barry Goldwater Peak via Goat Camp Trail. My first time up in 2014 I used a combination of the park map and some notes jotted down from other hikers. This time I was armed with Gaia GPS app and pre-downloaded tracks. Quick trip up - 1 hour 45 minutes without taking a rest break. I cut off some distance from my previous climb by cutting over to the tower road at the shortest distance going up a dry creek bed. This isn't the "typical" route described, but its shorter and basically covers the same terrain. This was my third peak in three days, after having done Humphreys Peak on Monday and Camelback on Tuesday, so my feet were starting to feel it by the top due to blisters from sweating in my goretex boots that are better on hikes like Humphreys where it's cold versus hot desert. At the top I signed the register, applied some blister packs to both feet, and headed down. Descent was about an hour and 30 minutes - three hours and 13 minutes round trip. This is a good, challenging hike. Here's my linked GPS track on Gaia: https://www.gaiagps.co...

One last hike "out west" end of the big city.

Saw course little deer gals and four javelina...Surprised they were out and about it's chilly down here but today was gorgeous!!

Tried my hand at some bouldering off BG summit that didn't last long because I got chilled in the shade.

How I'll survive up north next week I have no idea haha

Sometimes you can't sleepy and borrow your sisters car to go somewhere pretty.
Parked in number 7 and headed up Mesquite Cyn trail pretty quick.
Saw a familiar junction and ended up bagging Barry Goldwater, I'm okay with that.
Went "down the other side" ran into 3 big puppies off leash so I went back the way I came to avoid the owners who I assume weren't far behind.
Back to Goat Camp jct then up Ford to make a loop out of it, came upon Waddell and opted to take that back to the parking lot.

Well. That was fun. Lots of birds out, redtails, a bat in the parking lot when I got there. Saw some fat quails, are they even supposed to be out when it's this cold?

Which by the way today was surprisingly warm. For January...

Fun loop, think I miss a trail connection in my links but forgot what it was

Big D and I had some hiking to do out in the White Tanks. We chose to do a Mesquite-Ford Canyon Loop and add in Goldwater Peak for good measure. We started our hike at 7:30am. Had perfect weather all day. Up on Goldwater we thumbed through the pages of the register and saw many familiar HAZ peeps. Included were Patrick L (as recent as yesterday :o ) Bruce the Eagle, Joey Gumdrop, and Dr. Frickincrazy.

After the hike we headed over to El Guerro Canelo for some Mesquite cooked carne asada tacos. Seemed fitting. Good times and good tacos!

JJ drove us out to the White Tanks so I could check off Barry Goldwater Peak. :thanx: Now I need to do Quartz.
We went up Mesquite and down Ford from the staging area so no Waddell on this trip. JJ turned it down a notch but kept a good pace for me. Great temps, hike, and conversation on the way up. Good to catch up. On the way down JJ set a time for the tacos so we picked it up and made it ahead of schedule :) . Good times. :y:

Return visit a long time in the making. I had hiked to Barry Goldwater with my brother in law a little over 4 years ago, and I have wanted to do it again ever since. Make it a double peak day, and I am in. I managed to shave almost an hour and change off the previous time, and added in the extra peak. Thanks to trekkin gekko for the track idea, the tower road walk in between made logistics work out nicely. I got an 8:30 start in the morning, chilly but not too bad. Goat Camp is good trail, but gets pretty relentless from mile 1-3 or so. I saw a group of 6 white tail cross the trail about 50-60 feet ahead of me right before the Radio spur, Awesome start to a great hike. I had a head down moment and plowed past the turn off for the Radio Summit, but did not get too far down the trail before I realized my mistake. First time up the Radio Summit, the spur trail is pretty easy to follow. It does get a little thin in spots, but since you are heading up a ridgeline to a bunch of looming towers, it is hard to get too far off track. Took a short break at the top and then headed down the tower road for Barry Goldwater. Nothing like dropping 800' just to gain it right back again. Big machinery up by the top, looks like there will be some construction in the near future. Took a few minutes to thumb through the summit register, saw lots of familiar names in here. Great to see so many of my HAZ brothers and sisters representing. Looks like I just missed the Eagle and Ray Huston by a day! Took another break for some views and headed on down to the connector trail. I stopped a little ways down for a PB sandwich and some Gatorade, and then powered my way out. I saw about a dozen hikers today, but they were all within 2 miles of the trailhead. All Rush on the playlist today, Fly by Night, Signals, Caress of Steel (my personal favorite), 2112, Exit Stage Left. Been listening to more Rush this week after hearing Neil Peart is officially hanging up the sticks, sad days for the rock world. So glad I got to see them one last time on the R40 tour...

Started GC 6:15a, summit 8:25a, finish 10:10a. First hour was by headlamp as I was constrained by time as I had a 1:10p flight back home to Minnesota. I ended up jogging most of the relative flats both ways between mile markers 3 and 5. Took a couple short breaks and about 10 minutes on the summit to sign the log and take a couple pictures. I actually had full LTE Verizon coverage at the top - those big towers are blasting cell signals and probably microwaving my brain cells too!

Descent of 1:45 was really aggressive - jogging whenever possible to save time - but the temperature was great (~50), and the trails were clear. I actually didn't see anyone until past the 3 mile marker on the way down, 10 miles into the hike. I went through about three liters of water total and had one Kind bar. If I could do it over again I would have started with less layers even though it was about 45 when I started. I got hot quick and ended up carrying a light jacket and light fleece most of the trip. I was on vacation and didn't have all my gear, but this could easily be done with just a camelbak and light snack.

Overall it was a great experience and the instructions on here made it really straight forward - thanks for the inspiration!

headed west this morning after work for the two high points in the white tanks
up goat camp to just past the three mile mark, then found the use trail that goes up to the radio towers
it must get plenty of traffic, because there is zero route-finding needed
signed the summit register but there were a lot of bees nearby, so i didn't stay long
took the road over to barry goldwater peak
saw that patrick, 9l and kyle have signed in this year
back down the road to the cairned use trail that descends to just above the five mile mark on goat camp
went back down goat camp
this route provides the most efficient access to both peaks, although it's not my favorite trail in the white tanks
expansive vistas in the higher regions and interesting rock formations along the trails and in the drainages
lots of dust in the air this morning
saw a couple dozen people on goat camp, but no one once i got off trail
light breeze, cool temps and some haze at times
a good day for it

Had the week off of work so decided to get a good hike in. Started this hike at 7am and it was 55 degrees. I had my 2 liter camelback, plus 4 20oz bottles which would turn out to be the perfect amount. The first mile or so is a breeze, good for stretching your legs and getting your blood flowing. Shortly into the second mile you start your climb. This second mile is a good indication of the type of trail goat camp is. After a bit the trail evens out and then the final quarter mile or so you climb up out of goat canyon and gain your first ridge. The third mile is more of the same. A little bit of climbing up the side of another canyon crossing over and gaining another ridge. I had to take a few breaks along this 2 mile stretch.
Good news, mile post 2-3 and 3-4 are pretty much the hardest part of this trail. By the time you hit mile post 4 you have already gained your second ridge and loop around another canyon on a gradual decent. Once you hit mile marker 5 you're on the other side of the canyon and have already started a gradual incline, nice and steady.
This is when I started looking for the side trail that leads up to peak. It is pretty easy to spot, I was able to identify where it would be before I actually saw it. There was a small peak on the left that you wrap around, and just follow the ridgeline.
In 15 minutes I hit the service road and followed that up to the top. It took me about 2:30 to make it up. After a rest and some lunch I headed back down. By this time it was about 65 degrees. The way down was easier on the legs but tougher on the feet (I have the blisters to prove it). Make sure you have good shoes for this. By the time I made it down it was well over 70 degrees, although it felt hotter as there is not a lot of shade. Was done by 1:00pm.

My wife and I live in Surprise and I drive home everyday looking at the White Tanks wondering what it would be like to hike to the top. After a bit of research, I planned out the hike to the top and everything was planned for Saturday. We woke to an overcast day with a bit of light rain, but we planned accordingly and started out from Goat Camp Trail. We saw a few hikers on the flat part of the trail, but after the first mile, the trail was barren.

With all the recent rain, the desert was beautiful. We didn't have any problem finding the turn off of Goat Camp. Almost to the jeep trail we ran into two other hikers who where making their decent. We pushed on, made the top, and relaxed while enjoying the view. Great hike and one I look forward to doing again.

Beautiful day for a hike. Made it to the top of Barry Goldwater easily this week. With no fog or rain it was easy to find the turn off, unlike last weekend. So far this is my favorite big hike that I have done around Phoenix. Just enough route finding to keep you on your toes and total solitude for most of the hike.

Found all of the cairns on the jeep trail easily and was able to find my way to the dirt road leading up to the peak. Glad I kept the lower half of my convertible pants on through the old jeep trail, the cacti was fairly thick in spots.

Finally went out and made my way up to the Barry Goldwater Peak. I have had this on my "list" for quite some time. Beautiful day for it and was suprised to see only a handfull of people out on the Goat Camp trail.

On my return I was an awesome white tail buck. He was coming up out of the canyon opposite of the trail. Amazing how easily they can get up the side of a steep hill.

Started on a dark, cool, clear morning in the Valley. The guy at the park entrance said I was his first customer on the day.

It'd been awhile since I'd been out to the White Tanks, and it sure felt good to not have to drive at least a couple of hours to get out of the heat to hike.

Ford Canyon is one of my favorites in the park, so I started my big loop there. I enjoy both Willow and Mesquite, so I did some off trail to the top of Willow Spring and then included the upper portions of Willow then Mesquite. Now on Goat Camp on my way to Barry Goldwater Peak, I kept my eyes open for any signs. None. I followed a wash to the road that goes to Barry Goldwater peak. I sat and enjoyed the views while I ate my lunch. I actually got a bit cold up there.

My least favorite part of this hike was the steep, rough, uneven downhill portion of Goat Camp Trail. I'd forgotten how bad that portion of the track is.

My goals were simple for the day:
1) Get to a spot where I could see Willow Spring from above - Check
2) Get to the top of Barry Goldwater Peak - Check
3) Hike the part Of the Goat Camp Trail that I hadn't done before - Check
4) Put together a loop in for some good exercise - Check
5) See a Goat on Goat Camp Trail - Nope....

Christopher Columbus has arrived! I say this, because 6 months ago I thought that I had done this trail, when in fact I had done the Radio Summit Trail. With temperatures being below 100 I thought this would be a great opportunity to do this summit. Started at 6am. The temps might have been "low", but it was muggy with very little wind. Made decent time heading up the Goat Camp. Saw a doe and 2 fawn about 1 and a half miles in. Great way to start the hike :) Little ways past that I encountered what I believe was a Black Headed Garter snake. It was right at eye level and I just saw the last 3 feet to it heading down its hole.

I had down loaded the track to the summit and that was quite helpful in finding the trail that led from Goat Camp to the summit. Once on the trail, it was easy enough to follow to the service road. The service road was steep at parts, almost Thompsonesque. It didn't, help that by this time I was already 6 miles into the hike. By the time I reached the summit my clothes were drenched! It looked as if I had fallen into a pool of water. If only I had been so lucky. Took a short break to sign into the log and admire the view. Last entry was a David Wirth on 7/14. The view wasn't as great as I would have liked. It was very hazy, so distant views weren't good.

Heading back down to the Goat Camp Trail was uneventful, though my leg muscles did start to tighten up, so I started to down fluids a little more agressively. I finally got some intermitant cloud covering, which was great, giving me a chance to cool and dry off. When I got back to the Goat Camp Trail I decided I would make a loop of my hike and take the Mesquite Trail back down. Have you ever noticed how a lizard moving through dry brush sounds like a rattlesnake? During this hike, I counted 98 lizards! I heard 130 rattlesnakes :) I actually encountered 1 rattlesnake about .5 miles from the Mesquite Trail. It was kind enough to give me quite a bit of warning...I was about 10 feet away from it when it rattled at me. Didn't meet any hikers in the interior, though I did pass 4 different parties heading up after I had passed the Willow TH.

Once I got to flat ground I had to trail blaze a little bit to hook up to the Mule deer Trail. For some reason the beginning leg of (and the parking lot for) the Mesquite TH was barricaded off. From the Mule Deer, I took the Bajada Trail over to the Goat Camp Trail and hen back to the car. Overall great hike! Wildlife was abundant. I also saw 5 chipmunks, a squirrel and a horny toad. Wish the view from the top had been a little clearer.

Started at the Bajada. Planned to hike Goat Camp/ Mesquite/ Mule Deer. Once on top of the ridge at Goat Camp just passed the 3 mile marker, I realized that I was facing 10+ miles of almost no AEG and Barry was calling. Took the wash to the road. You connect to the road at a lower elevation than the other spur trail. The road is not Thompson Peak but was glad to be done.
