Hike to Brown's Peak

Arizona Browns Peak Trailhead

Added by Aaron Maltby

This is an incredible hike that leads to a spectacular 360 view of Arizona landscapes.

Starting at the trailhead you will begin hiking through oak trees and forest. At numerous times throughout the hike Roosevelt Lake can be seen to the northwest. Approximately 3 miles into your hike you will reach a small campsite in the saddle of the mountain. This is your turnaround point if you do not wish to climb through the chute. The chute, as it's become to be nicknamed, is a steep climbing section you will need to pass through to get to the top of Brown's Peak.

Once you are through the chute you have reached the top! At 7659 feet you have climbed the highest peak in Maricopa County. Relax at the top and take in the spectacular views of Roosevelt Lake and the other peaks of the Four Peaks Wilderness!

Hi my name is Aaron Maltby. I spend most of my free time exploring all the beauty Arizona has to offer. Whether it be cliff jumping or kayaking I believe that most things worth seeing come from the greatest struggle of the search.

Although this hike can feasibly done in a day, it is highly recommended that you spend more than one day in this area and visit the falls as a side trip on a larger trip.
