Ascent Trip Report

From the trailhead at North Mount Lemon road, Laura and I hiked along the Arizona-Oracle Ridge trail about 5.5 miles, passing over Oracle Ridge along the way (no register), then hiked through the brush to Rice Peak-North Ridge, where Laura finished the Arizona County High Point list-congrads Laura!! After signing the register, we continued up the brush to the top of Rice Peak (no register), then went down the jeep road to rejoin the Arizona-Oracle Ridge trail. Next, we hiked back towards the car, going up to Oracle Ridge-Middle Peak along the way, signed the register, then dropped back down to the main trail. Once back on the trail, Laura and I hiked several more miles to about 7160' in elevation, then followed a 4x road to the base of Marble Peak, which we climbed via its northwest ridge. After signing the summit register, we returned to the main trail and then to the car, going up and over Mount Hitchcock (also no register) along the way. Trip stats are for all four peaks.
