Whenever we see Four Peaks we have the conversation, " How many peaks do you see?" Depending on where in the valley you view this landmark the answer varies. How many do you see?
Walk Difficulty: easy
Distance: 2/3 mi RT
Status: Alive and well on 2/22/2014
From I-10 and US 60, drive east on US 60. Exit Ellsworth Rd, exit #191, and head north. This road becomes Usery Pass Road. Continue past the entrance of Usery Park for 0.9 mi. to a dirt parking area on the right.
Take the trail at the NE end of the parking area.
Hike along the trail eventually into the wash.
Continue along the wash until you see a sturdy mesquite tree in the wash on the left side.
68 steps from the tree there is a narrowing of the trail formed by a ridge of boulders on the left and a hillside of boulders on the right.
About 28 steps ahead you will find yourself between 2 palo verde trees and a tall saguaro on the left and a small saguaro on the right.
Standing between the saguaros sight at 148 degrees up slope.
Walk up slope for 30 steps past 2 barrel cacti to 2 saguaro.
Stop at the first saguaro and look left to 2 boulders.
Recover well with rocks and brush.
In front of the 2 Palo Verdes is a nice view of Many Peaks.
