Ascent Trip Report

Started at the Hualapai Park Trailhead. Headed up main trail and started the Potato Patch Loop to the left or east until we hit the Hualapai Peak Rd. Continued on the road almost all the way to the summit. Just before the last switchback you should see a good sized rock cairn indicating the use trail to the summit. Easy to follow. A little brushy in stops. The key to the summit block is a short somewhat exposed ledge to shimmy around to gain the high point. The bench mark is actually on a lower rock. The monument on the high point is a directional marker. One the way be we continued on the road and Potato Patch Loop through the Boy Scout camp. Lots of plumbed well water here. If the water is working there is no need to carry much water on this hike as you can fill up here on both your entry and exit. We bagged Aspen Peak as well on the way out. It's an easy to follow maintained trail as well. The summit block here can be a little tricky as well but we called it close enough. Those more agile and comfortable can easily make the jump to the block. Continued out the loop and back down. Made for nice 3500 ft, 10 mile day hike. My gps track is a trace of Open Street Map track for reference and approximation of Hualapai Peak access. Some pics
