Description

Squaw Peak (aka Squaw Mountain) is the massive chunk of limestone that makes up the north side of Rock Canyon. The peak rises up almost 3000 feet above the mouth of the canyon.

You can hike to the top of the mountain via the Squaw Peak trail (~4.2 miles; hike up the canyon a couple miles until the trail forks and you see "Squaw Peak Trail" written on a boulder. Turn left there and follow it to the summit) or you can climb your way up nearly 2000 feet of remarkably good limestone.

Getting There

Getting to the base of the rock takes between 35 minutes and an hour depending on how fast you're going and how familiar you are with the approach. See the route description for more information.
