Ascent Trip Report

Hiked from Oak Flat at the end of FR445 (which is a good road from Hwy. 188 until the stream crossing shortly before the TH) on the 123 Trail to the Arizona Trail, then Amethyst Trail, to just below the saddle where it meets the regular trail, then up the rock scramble. Returned down the regular trail to the parking lot, walked the road to the Pigeon Springs TH and took the AZT back to the 123 junction just past Shake Spring and back down 123. Total distance was 11.9 miles with 4492 feet of gain. 123 is very steep, the 1.8 miles up took me an hour. Second summit this week, 1st was on Sunday.
