Ascent Trip Report

The trailhead could use better signage- it's the first turnout south of the Cave Creek Canyon Visitor Center.

The trail could use better maintenance, but fortunately none of the plants encroaching on the trail were sharp, so the trail was fairly easy to follow. Great views from both the trail and the summit! This was a great choice to complete my Arizona P2K list on!
