Short and sweet with really nice views. No markers, but not too hard to figure out. Park at the entrance for Bull Dog Canyon. Follow the road a little bit until it splits. Veer left at the split. Trail continues off to the left where the road appears to end and is pretty defined. There is loose gravel so it can be slippery in some spots coming down. If you're taking a dog watch the cholla especially as you get towards the top.

It was a short and sweet hike. Lots of sand and loose gravel but beautiful views.

Plenty of free parking, trail all to myself, views of Salt River, Red Mountain, Four Peaks, Weaver’s Needle, some of Superstition Mountains and the north side of Pass Mountain. What’s not to like? All the loose gravel almost pulled it down to a 3, but not quite.
Trail is easy to follow, comes with a bench at the summit, and I got a decent workout and was up and back to the car in less than an hour.

This was an amazing hike! Views were great the entire way up and even better at the top! Would definitely do this one again!
The way down is a little tough due to all of the loose rock.

Short hike with very good scenery. Nice view of the open dessert and surrounding mountains. One you reach the peak you get rewarded with 360 degrees view of the valley. The beginning of trail is somewhat easy but gets a little more challenging for the last 200’feet.
