Very scenic spot. Great for taking pictures. The hike up to it has many spectacular views of DC Ranch and the surrounding McDowell Mountains.

I hiked this in early May on a beautiful cloudy/cool day. My hike was more like 7.3 miles due to the fact that I went all the way to Windgate Pass. There is a stone bench to use for taking a rest and soaking up the scenery. It's really cool to see The Lookout and Mcdowell and Drinkwater Peaks looming above, while the neighborhood of DC Ranch lies below. You can also see how far you've come from Gateway. Nice scenic spot.

Great trail! Took us about 2.5 hours. Only downside is the bugs were terrible!

Had a great hike, very gradual incline up until very close to the top where it became a bit more challenging but worth the effort. Beautiful scenery.

Pretty rocky but not a lot of elevation. I was able to run at least 50%. Beautiful views!
