Great hike as always. However, the trail is super overgrown and I would highly recommend wearing pants. I spent a solid 20 minutes up top peeling the little green plant Velcro like stickers off my socks and pants. Otherwise it was great.

Road is in fair condition as it is often very washboard. Trail is good if slightly overgrown from last year abundant summer growth. Don't ever wear shorts unless you want a lot of scratches.
Fantastic views all the way up.
Took my 16 year old grandaughter up @New years. This day it was the Tubac Social Climbers. Remember that most of the hike is in the full southeast sun and is warmer than expected. Not much shade. Best for a calm day as wind at the top is unpleasant.

Spent a few days out in the Patagonia Mountains again, and decided to tag this one on the way back home. Trail is a little overgrown, but the grade is such that a good amount of the trail is runnable where it's relatively clear. One other vehicle at the trailhead, so I figured I ought to see someone at some point. Heard voices somewhere about a mile in, but didn't actually see their owners; must've been off trail.

There were really just two bad patches of catclaw, although my legs looked like there were more. View at the top was outstanding, and makes the somewhat unpleasant trail worthwhile.

Caught up to the owners of the other vehicle just as I got to the TH. They said they saw me and were debating whether I'd get back before them. One of the guys was 87 years old.

I'm going to go ahead and assume this is an FKT. Because who else would be dumb enough to try and run this?

This was one of those hikes where halfway through I just wanted it to be over. The trail is ridiculously overgrown. The higher you climb the thicker and thornier the vegetation becomes. Thick pants and a long-sleeved shirt are a must. I only wore a t-shirt and must have close to fifty cuts on my arms. After donating so much blood I wasn't up for the long drive back home so I spent the night at White Rock Campground. The next morning I did some birding at Pena Blanca Lake and drove out to see the ghost towns of Lochiel, Washington Camp, Harshaw and the Empire Ranch.

I had to make a run to the border to take care of a few things including getting a haircut. Hit the good old Atascosa lookout on my way back. Trails in great shape with the exception of a couple downed trees. Saw a small pack of coatimundis on my way out. I miss this area.

The Atascosa Lookout and Atascosa Peak have been on my radar screen for a while, so I decided to head south and hike up to both of them today.

We took the Atascosa Lookout Trail up to the old Lookout, which was destroyed by the Murphy Fire in 2011. We gained about 1,500 feet in elevation over 2.5 miles in getting to the lookout, and you will get a good workout on the climb. There were great views on top of the lookout, and it was fun being up there.

There is no trail going from the Lookout to the Peak, and we headed off to the NE to descend down from the Lookout. This was a bit steep and slippery in the early going, but it wasn't long until the terrain leveled off a bit. It was pretty finding a route over to the peak, although we had to do some rock scrambling along the way. There was a bit of easy class 3 climbing to get up to the Peak -- just enough to make for a fun climb! There were more awesome 360 degree views on top of the Peak.

We mostly went back toward the Lookout the way we came, but this time when we skirted the west side of the Lookout and hit the Lookout Trail not too far below the top of the Lookout. If I do this hike again, I'll take this route on the west side of the Lookout in heading over toward the Peak.

This hike was a lot of fun, and it is one that I would enjoy doing again someday.

The dirt road that the TH is one is pretty well graded(the Border Patrol keeps it in decent shape), and most any car can make it; however, you'll enjoy having a bit of clearance.

Two weeks ago today I started day one of my hike up to Mt. Olympus. A week ago today I spent my last day in Nis doing a short hike with my son. This morning I woke up less than a mile from the Mexican border in a cheap motel, recovering from the near deathmarch from the day before. But it was a cheap motel with a free hot breakfast, which is why booked that motel, and I took advantage of that before I left that morning, helping myself to two big plates of eggs, sausage, tater tots and refried beans, all covered with salsa.

On the way back from Sycamore Canyon the evening before, I spotted the signs for the Atascosa Lookout Trail. For some odd reason, these signs are faced to the south, so you can only see them if you're coming the other way from who knows where. As I passed the trailhead and looked up at the trail immediately climbing, it felt impossible that I would even attempt that hike in a mere 12 hours. But it's a wonder what some hydration, rest, and good meal at a Mexican steakhouse can do. And ibuprofen. Gotta has some Vitamin IB.

I had expected this hike to be the harder one of the two I did this weekend, this and Sycamore Canyon. But between the earlier start, higher elevation, and prehydration before the hike, it was actually much easier. Having an actual trail to follow helps quite a bit. Plus, the views all along this trail are spectacular, which I can't really say for Sycamore Canyon, to be kind. And as you ascend, the temperature gets cooler, and the breezes more often. It made everything about 1000 times more pleasant than the day before.

For some reason, I had thought this hike was more like 6 or 6.6 miles round trip. I think that might be if you include Atascosa Peak. Once at the lookout, I looked at the peak and the route to get there. I was kind of hoping that it would be the kind of route that's actually starting to turn into a trail, at least in spots. Like the way Battleship Mt. is turning into. No such luck. It looked pretty rugged. Not beyond my skill set, but beyond what I had planned for today. Especially with a couple fresh blisters from yesterday.

Spent some time at the top playing with the zoom on my camera at the rock formations and the faraway vistas. The views to the west and south go on forever, making for nice scenery that your imagination can run away with. The valleys on the east side looked nice as well. The pictures came out better on the way down with the lighting being different.

The views here are both beautiful and God forsaken at the same time. It's amazing to see so far, but the lack of green and rugged rock formations remind you of how rugged and unforgiving this area is.

Saw quite a few deer again along the road on the way in and out. One nearly jumped in front of my car on the way out. The only traffic on the road was early in the morning by the Border Patrol.

It has been a few years since I have been up here. I miss the old lookout and the leaning over outhouse. The views are quite awesome though, and in stormy weather can't be beat down here IMO. The trail seemed more beaten in and open than I remember; however I had not hiked this since it burned over a few years back. It was windy at times and cool, and had to don the rain poncho for a few minutes here and there.
Drove the loop as I like to do. Had a few scary moments driving down on I-19 in heavy rain, a wrong way driver. He got off and fortunately turned around.
Water run off evident, with muddy puddles of varying depth between Ruby and Arivaca. The pavement drive is really fun after a rain due to all the washes the curvy dippy road crosses. Fair amount of water and debris on the road in some places.
The clouds, the light, and the coolness were just wonderful. The rain, just awesome. Can't wait to return down here in mid- late August, early Sept if we have had a good monsoon. It'll be green like Ireland and there will be water everywhere.
Drove by the area where the border patrol agent was wounded earlier this week. I've been in that canyon but don't recall seeing any particular sign. Saw one agent in his truck on the loop, and no other traffic on the dirt.

I needed to make a Mexico run and asked JohnLP if he wanted to join me and do Elephant Head along the way. He suggested Atascosa Lookout instead since he has never done it. We had a good hike up and experienced a good steady breeze most of the way. Afterwards we headed over to look around the old mining town of Ruby.

It was haircut Time once again. So per usual I decided to give the ol' Atascosa trail another go. Couldn't have asked for a better day out there however the trail is getting awfully overgrown. Otherwise it was fantastic!

I know this hike is way off the radar for most people because of the drive, but it's really quite easy to get there. Once on the I-10/I-19 south, you only have to make one turn (onto Ruby Rd) to reach the trailhead.

The hike to the lookout is fairly straight forward, but getting to the peak is when the fun begins (besides the 100 yards of hell leaving the main trail). The mile of off-trail from the lookout to Atacosa Peak was pretty fun, and navigating through the boulders and srambling up to the summit made it a bit of an adventure.

I was the only one out there today, start to finish, not a single person. So if solitude is your thing, you'll enjoy it.

Trail is easy to follow and maintained, with the exception of one wash that crosses the trail and a few fallen trees that should pose no problem. Water on the trail is most likely non existent normally except after a storm. The trail is short enough that all water needed can be carried. Great View in all directions from Lookout. This is a good winter overcast hike.

Haircut time again so I hit this one on the way down. I had a little extra time so I did the Peak as well as the lookout. The area is super green at the moment. Trail was easy to follow and no rough encounters with the Border Patrol.

The plan was to do the peak as well, but we were unmotivated - two of us had done the peak a few times previously..

Today I joined a great group of folks from the TLC Hiking meetup group to Atascosa Lookout and Atascosa Peak. I’d been to the Lookout twice before, [which I mistakenly assumed was the same as Atascosa Peak]. As I emphasized in the Description, it’s not! This time, I finally got the peak.

The views are absolutely are awesome, and in writing the description, I did my best to estimate the time it would take to complete the hike and still enough the views. Unless you hike on the fast side, [and/or don’t usually take much time to soak in views], then I highly recommend ignoring my stats of 3.5 hrs RT or you will be sorely disappointed. While it was very nice to hike with a group/friends, the pace tends to be very fast… and enjoying a summit for more than 15-20 minutes would be an EXTREMELY long amount of time. For a summit as beautiful as Atascosa Peak, 45-60 minutes would be most ideal; and if you’ve never been to the Atascosa Lookout Tower, then you’ll definitely want to take more than a mere 2 minute stop, like I did today.

Having been there twice before, the brief pause at the Lookout Tower didn’t bother me. However, to say it was extremely frustrating and disappointing to have just 15-20 minutes to enjoy the beautiful summit of Atascosa Peak would be an understatement… and I left the summit 5-10 minutes after the others in my group! Not even the AWESOME bouldering hopping off the summit and back across the sweet ridgeline could cheer me up… but I found something that did…

As I neared the edge of the ridgeline and was preparing for one final ascent back up to the Lookout Tower, my eye caught site of a small saddle to the left of the Lookout Tower, almost straight ahead. I was in a bad enough mood from not having been able to fully enjoy such a beautiful summit that I made a split second decision the moment I set eyes on that saddle: screw the steep scramble back up to the Lookout Tower; and screw having to continue busting butt at breakneck speed, [so as not to hold up the people that rode with me]…

…when I could stroll up the very gradual slope to that saddle and then bushwhack pretty much straight ahead, contouring the peak with the Lookout Tower, cutting off a good portion of trail that I had no interest in doing, AND not having to go at breakneck speed to catch up with the group. I took a quick glance at my ascent track, which confirmed that my sense of direction was spot on.

It was definitely a gamble… while the terrain had been very generous, there were some cliffy sections… but I was in a bad enough mood to risk cliffing out and potentially having to backtrack. To my pleasant surprise, the going was actually very fast, and the shortcut was pretty sweet! There was even a faint route leading to the saddle, which continued for a short ways after… [and it proved extremely helpful in allowing me to completely circumvent what would have been a hellacious bushwhack through a large, thick patch of cat claw].

There was one dicey moment where I had to maneuver off a boulder with a large drop that lacked decent foot-/hand-holds. Under normal conditions, it would’ve been a non-issue; however, there were still several areas with snow/ice, and most of the few foot-/hand-holds on this boulder were covered in ice. With above average bouldering skills, [and below average ability when it comes to negotiating loose or slippery footing], I threw the ‘three points of contact’ rule out the window and continued on my merry way. Aside from that one spot, the going was really smooth!

Given the lead that the group had on me, [and the fact that they are typically much faster downhill hikers], I was very surprised to have made it back to the TH a full 14 minutes before the next person, and a full 20 minutes before the leader/main pack.

Another trip to Mexico for another haircut resulted in another trip up to Atascosa Lookout. Little more exciting this time. Got a visit from CPB. :o :D

Hair cut time again. This time Brian was in town so he came along. His first time to Nogales and first time on the Atascosa Trail. A very small amount of snow remains up top and no new progress on the former lookout.

It was time for another hair cut in Mexico so that meant time for another hike on the way back. I keep wondering when if ever progress will resume on the former lookout that burned down. Well nothing yet. There is however an American Flag that has been installed since my last visit.

As I went up the trail I could see dark clouds forming above and to the south. Mostly over Mexico. Lighting was sparking here and there when added a cool spectacle against the dark skies. I had contemplated going to Atascosa Peak as well but didn't really want to get caught in a storm up there. On the way down I checked out a small use trail. I am not sure where it leads but certainly may be a path beaten by immigrants. There was evidence of travel and what looked to be a spot where they may have spent the night.

On the drive out I saw 6 border patrol trucks gathered with 3 illegal crossers in custody.

I always enjoy Atascosa. Maybe because it is so close to Mexico...
