  • Picacho Peak via Hunter Trail is a challenging hike. The distance is short, and the elevation change is steep. There are sections that require holding onto metal cables that have been bolted into the rock to assist as you kie up the rocks. The reward at the top is fantastic with 365 degree views of the desert ranging from Tucson to Casa Grande and from the Catalina Mountains to the (Arizona) Sawtooth Mountains. The sens of accomplishment is HIGH, and every ime you drive past Picacho on I-10, you can brag that you hiked to the top!
