    Climb this peak with your car. This mountain is a playground for many Arizonans, as it has pines and lakes, flora and fauna not seen in the deserts or Arizona. While the peak is somewher at 9200...

    From trailhead to summit you pass though 5 life zones. Most trails are maintained. Summer months are too extreme(heat)especially at lower elevations.
