On The Rocks – Lone Mountain

Hey everyone, welcome to On The Rocks! I’m your trail guide, Claudia Collins. I’m taking you along on my adventures as I check hikes, waterfalls, and other outdoor activities off of my Arizona bucket list. Today we’re trekking up EJ Peak in the Tonto National Forest for some stunning panoramic views!

Lone Mountain is a 2.3-mile trail with 761 feet of elevation gain and it’s rated moderate. This out-and-back trail is the perfect morning or sunset hike that won’t take too much of your day. On average is can be completed in under 2 hours, even if it’s conquered slowly. 

Every hike is brought to you by Desert Financial Credit Union.
