Ascent Trip Report

we started in phoenix, and drove in via 87 and the four peaks road from the west. gmaps took us direct to the trailhead on pidgeon springs road. we'd cross a half dozen small streams. the road was rough in many places, but 4wd didn't seem particularly necessary.

we took the brushy north slope on the way up and down. there was evidence of other humans along this route, but no definite trail.

we departed via el oso road going east (to head to pinal next): this road is a far easier / enjoyable drive than the four peaks road. any SUV could make either approach though.
