It had a great view of Red Mountain to the north-northwest. If you could see through Red Mountain, you would have been able to see McDowell Mountain Park another 20 or so miles beyond.
On a clear day you can see forever. On this day, we were lucky to see 25 miles west to downtown Phoenix.
And just in case you need some help with orientation, you can see the Phoenix arrow from World War II flight training days.
To make it even better, it's only 1/2 mile to the dump station at the neighborhood Chevron and grocery store.
the access road is steep and very washed out. If that's not enough,
there's a gate at the bottom of the hill. At one time, the hill was home to some microwave towers. It is now privately owned and platted for several home sites although for the past fifteen years it has only been used by people looking for a bit of exercise and a view.
Seems like a great spot, IF you could get permission and could get there!
