Ascent Trip Reportthe harquahala mountain byway is definitely a 4x4 hi-clearance road. you'll want sturdy tires as well: the rocks are sharp and frequent.
we stopped at a turnout in order to get some hiking in. a bit further up the road was a big rock in the road, there was a work crew headed up the mountain to remove it. it would have been tricky to get my truck around it, but not impossible (another similarly large truck appeared to make it past the rock after we were done our hike).
the wildflowers were awesome, at all elevations. definitely a good time to visit: it wasn't too hot, but a week earlier there had been a heatwave, and we kind of lucked out with a "cool" spell (only ~80F), and some welcome winds.
