This was my first trip I ever took to Arizona to visit my uncle and this hike looked amazing from the pictures I saw so we went. It was a pretty hot day for being April (easily 90 degrees). But it can get up too 118 here in the summer. There are 28 species of cactus out here including prickly pear, barrel, saguaro, and the famous organ pipe. Watch out for the cholla plants. They have really sharp barbs. Animals here include everything from birds to gila monsters, rabbits, javelina, scorpions, and rattlesnakes. I didn't see any snakes on this hike but they are around. Don't forget the hat, sunscreen, and sunglasses. And be sure to take plenty of water and snacks. It gets very hot out here and you will need them as this is a pretty strenuous hike up near the top.

Short trail with beautiful views. Going counter-clockwise was great advice. Also, once you reach Bull Pasture, I wouldn't bother pushing further like the map on AllTrails shows. It continues for another 20 minutes and gives you a bit of a view of another part of the part, but nothing compared to Bull Pasture.

Why come all this way if you aren't going to summit Mount Ajo? It's a beautiful hike.

Nice hike. I'd like to have continued up to Mount Ajo summit.

Great view at the top, be sure to take the trail counterclockwise for an easier return hike.

Pretty steep the last half mile. And don't let the false summit trick you. Keep going up to the ridge where you find the Bull Pasture sign :)
