Description

40 miles north east of Phoenix, Four Peaks Wilderness includes the Four Peaks which can be seen from Phoenix. The rock is quartzite. In addition to the peaks this area includes Brushy Basin. Since the elevation is so much higher than the surrounding area the weather and conditions are probably different than they were in downtown Phoenix two hours ago.

Getting There

202 to HWY 87. 13 miles or so north of Shea turn east onto FR 143. Drive this good dirt road for 16 miles (Brushy Basin is at 13 miles or so), then turn right on FR 648 to the trail head parking area for the Four Peaks. The dirt road is in good shape and you do not need high clearance or 4WD. Try not to run over any of the dirt bikes or 4 wheelers. Bring a respirator if you don't want to get choked out by dust. Schedule a car wash for as soon as you get home.
