On The Rocks – Flatiron via Siphon Draw

Hey everyone! Welcome to On The Rocks, I’m your trail guide, Claudia Collins. I’m taking you along for my adventures as I check hikes, waterfalls, and other outdoor activities off of my Arizona bucket list. Today, I’m taking you up one of the toughest hikes in the state. 

Flatiron via Siphon Draw Trail is approximately a 7-mile hike with over 2,650 feet in elevation gain. This hike is very difficult with some steep sections and an entirely uphill battle. However, on the weekends you will see hundreds of people trekking up the mountain. 

Hikers will need to access the trailhead at Lost Dutchman State Park. This gorgeous state park has many bathroom facilities, beautiful campgrounds and so many epic views to take in. The cost at the gate is $10 per vehicle.
