Ascent Trip Report

Parked at visitor lot. Walked up the road and found dirt road on aerial. Gate was locked. I walked around the gate and down to the low point in the road where the creek bed (dry) crossed and then followed road to camp site. Here, I left the dirt road and headed up hill following both deer trails and maintained trails and surved lines to the top. This part of AZ is surprisingly beautiful with lots of species of trees in the rolling terrain. This little peak actually has some views. It has some prominence over the 100 foot threshold if it ever gets entered.
