Trail to base of mountain. Path up the mountain is paved. Trail to mountain moderate, paved path up the mountain is difficult. Excellent view of Yuma and Welton from the top.

Fantastic trail. If you’re really up for an adventure, hike the small mountain right in front of you when you park - it has a cross on top. It doesn’t lead anywhere but it’s a tough steep climb, much harder than he normal trail. Once you make you’re way back down then go ahead and hike the 5 miles to towers. At first, it’s an easy hike but as soon as you reach the entrance (just go around the security gate), it’s a tough steep climb to the top. Great views from top! After both climbs on both mountains, I would say this climb is moderate-hard just due to the steepness of the trail and climb! Make sure to pack lots of water and snacks as it may take longer than you think. Enjoy!

Really fun hike. You can choose a few different paths that all lead to the road that goes up to the peak. Bring water as the incline can get your cardio going fast. Very fun hike if the weather isn't blazing hot. Temperatures will drop soon and should be an even better time. If you want to see some scorpions take a blacklight and do this hike at night. Really neat stuff!
