The Mountains of Arizona
www.surgent.net
Updated: February 17, 2024

Welcome to my Arizona peaks page, where I track my climbs, hikes and drives to the mountains in Arizona. I moved to Phoenix in 1992 and started humbly, hiking Camelback Mountain that fall (and many times thereafter). I hiked a few other peaks in the ensuing years, including the state highpoint, Humphreys Peak, a number of times between 1994 and 2003. In 1999 I became interested in the county highpoints, and I completed the fifteen Arizona county highpoints in June 2000, and a second time in December 2006. My interests then shifted toward the state's most prominent peaks, and these days, anything interests me. I enjoy the variety that the state has to offer, the challenges getting to a peak and actually climbing it, and learning about the history of the region while doing my research and while in the field.

September 2022: All features in Arizona named Sq**w have been renamed, and the full list is here, and a link to the USGS master list for the entire United States is contained within the link. I have updated my peak pages accordingly.

May 2023: North Peloncillo Mountain has been officially renamed Doubtful Peak.

Lists & Links

Arizona State Trust Land Permits • A personal permit costs just $15 and is good for a year. It takes just a few minutes to get one on-line, and is an excellent deal. Many peaks in Arizona lie on or have approaches on Arizona State Trust Lands. I buy one every year and keep it with me and a copy in my car. I encourage anyone who likes to head out in the Arizona backcountry to get one.

Rec Access Portal • Permits for the Barry M. Goldwater AFR (Yuma & Pima Counties) can be purchased here. You definitely need one to access the BMGAFR.

Arizona Lands Ownership Map • Interactive map with many overlay options showing who owns what in Arizona.

Arizona P1K Peaks • Master list of all peaks in Arizona with 1,000 feet of prominence.

Arizona County Highpoints at cohp.org • Adam Helman's site is maintained partly as a legacy site, and is updated occasionally.

Arizona County Lowpoints • Something to do when you're feeling down.

Arizona's Range Highpoints at Lists of John • A complete listing of the range highpoints of Arizona.

City Highpoints of Maricopa County • Lists the highest points within each city inside Maricopa County. Some are challenging peaks, some are lame.

Newspaper Article • I made the news!

Magazine Article • And a magazine too!

Nomenclature • I occasionally give a peak a name on my site, and this explains my rules for doing so.

Mountain Prominence • How a mountain's prominence is defined, and a discussion on the differences between the terms elevation and altitude.

Lidar • How I use Lidar for some of the elevation and prominence figures on this page.

Main Page • The root page of this site.

 
Arizona &
Southwest

These are sites I enjoy and visit a lot, and recomend to you as well. Some of these sites deal with hiking in Arizona, or nearby Arizona, or sometimes more than hiking. These are personal sites and I have just one rule: if the site is infested with ads, I won't link to it or recommend it.

Arizona Backcountry Adventures • A wonderful site with photos of many back-roads locales in Arizona. One of my favorite sites.

Kingsnake's Den • A good resource for out-of-the-way hikes.

Steven Song • A Canadian who comes down here to hike sometimes, with lovely photos.

Glassmountains • Paul McClellan's site and blog.

Dog Snot On My Windshield • Hikes in Southeast Arizona, with lots of dog images.

Grand Gulch Hikers • Mostly concentrates on ranges along the Colorado River.

Desert Mountaineer • Doug Kasian's extensive peak page for the deserts of Southern Arizona.

Scott Peavy's SmugMug Site • Scott's photo site.

Adam Helman's Peaklist • The late Adam Helman's narratives of his many hikes, including details on what he ate. A great pal, I miss him dearly.

The Mountains Are Calling • Lots of Grand Canyon peaks and hikes, and an emphasis on more scrambly and technical climbs.

New Mexico Meanders • Good resource for that state next door.

The Gentle Art of Wandering • Various hiking and wandering journeys in and around New Mexico, by David Ryan.

Climb AZ • Geared more toward rock climbing around Tucson, but with a great retro look and lots of anecdotal stories.

Bob Burd • Bob occasionally comes to Arizona and lays waste to our fair state.

Earthline: The American West • Well-done site with plenty of Arizona hikes and colorful photography.

Explorumentary • by Sue Birnbaum, with hikes in Arizona, California, Nevada, Idaho and elsewhere.

Iron Hiker • Keith Winston's site, mainly desert peaks in San Diego County and surroundings.

Stav Is Lost • He may be lost, but he's getting some excellent hikes done with lots of fine images.

Ramblers Archives • Photos taken between 1948 and 1957 from the University of Arizona's Ramblers hiking club.

Bill Caid's LifeLog • Describes numerous trips throughout the desert southwest and Mexico, driving "mogs".

Wild Wanderer • Trip reports by Laura Clark, mostly Colorado and New Mexico peaks, but with good narratives and images.

The Long Green Tunnel • A site mainly focusing on SOTA, with lots of hiking adventures in Nevada, California and other states.

Arizona Roads • A retro site (last updated 2008) detailing the history of highways in Arizona.

AZ Offroad • Cool site mainly about back-country road trips, with lots of remote locations and photographs.

Confluences • This site is devoted to locating points on Earth with integer latitude & longitude coordinates. I have visited a few. Here are links to some of the ones in Arizona (or close) I have trod upon:

32N 111W32N 112W33N 109W33N 110W33N 111W33N 112W33N 113W33N 115W34W 111N34N 114W35N 110W35N 111W36N 111W37N 113W37N 114W
