Description

Brown's peak is the tallest and northern most of the four peaks. Fractured rock with lots of holds and places for pro, but also plenty of loose rock. There is also a scramble to the top of Browns peak so expect plenty of hikers on weekend days.

Getting There

Follow the directions for Four Peaks Wilderness to the Lone Pine Saddle trail head. Follow the trail up the railroad ties on a good trail which wanders up towards the peaks for 2.5 miles or so. A trail continues to the base of the class 2 Hikers gully. Plan on at least 2.5 hours from central Phoenix to the base/start of the hiker's gully.

About 19 miles or one hour of dirt roads before you reach the trailhead. (off-road vehicle recommended). The first strectch of the trail is moderate climbing, with the final stretch being more difficult as you climb up a steep incline. (not dog friendly). Both the off-roading and hiking aspects offer you cooler temperatures and spectacular views in every direction. View from the top on 9/24/16 - hdwallsource.com/browns-pea… Sep 25, 2016
The 19 mile road dirt road when entering off the 87 is pretty rough. However if you take the back way off the 188 it is much, much smoother but you do have a longer drive. The gully climb/hike was super fun and well worth the drive! I'm sure the right side of the gully has some really fun climbing yet to be established!!!! Mar 8, 2018
