Forest service has this listed as 16.2 miles round trip. My GPS clocked it at 15.4. Definitely more than 13 though. Had a great time on this hike but it's a days work. I was hiking for about 8 hours. Great views from the top and several spots along the way. Camping sites available as well about midway.

Incredible hike! Arizona rates their trails 1-5 5 being hardest and this is a 5! It's pretty good till the .5 mile marker to the peak. Then it is literally more than a 45 degree angle climb to the top! Insane yet well worth it. I live 10 miles from the mountain and look at it everyday knowing I've been to the tip top!
