Approximately 2.3 miles round trip, 1000 ft ascension. A steep, narrow trail carved into the rock of one of the Gila Mountains. The summit is designated with an American flag and a 360 degree view. Not for the faint of heart, nor for those inclined to acrophobia or vertigo.

Nice single track climb. Starts out easy and gets progressively harder, with a great scramble near the top. Beautiful views of the Yuma foothills. Recommend going in the winter months. Park near Las Barrancas golf course and run to the base for an added challenge.
