Looking at maps, I took off for a morning hike to Wilcox Peak figuring there would be a gate part way down the hill. Surprisingly you can drive pretty much just into the AZ. The road finishes at a turnaround/shooting area, unfortunately with a lot of trash. Wish I took some large bags with me, putting it on my list as trash really bothers me in the woods!

I parked at the dead end area, crossing my fingers no one showed up and would shoot my vehicle to pieces, and hiked up to the summit area. Basically just climbing a thick-with-brush bank but very short. Pretty dense area but the ridge has some openings. I found a nice spot to set up with a little window view through the timber facing W-SW looking towards Fielder Mountain.
