|Peak:||Lukachukai Mountains High Point|
| Elevation:||9466 ft / 2885 m|
Ascent Trip ReportI hiked on roads to within less than a quarter mile to the summit where I left the road and climbed up the steep slopes. I aimed to the left as you look at the highpoint to avoid the cliffs and then found a chute with a prominent pine tree in it to provide easy access to the summit ridge. From there it was an easy walk to the highpoint. A strong SUV in dry conditions can drive to the point where I left the road. I parked further down as a steep section of the road was slick and chewed up from recent rains. I encountered two gates on my hike, one was open and the other closed but not locked. The roads I found and walked do not match what you see on the topo map.
