This is a beautiful high mountainous desert that is absolutely gorgeous. The century old landscape eroding through time complimented with new growth & a great variety of cacti, trees & rocks make it a very interesting area to discover.

Don't bother with that hike. Do the Siphon Draw trail up the northwest side all the way to the Flatiron and then take a left all the way to the top. If you are in real good shape, you can be up and down in four hours. But... More
