Casa Grande Mountain Radio Tower Trail

This is a relatively easy hike, though the climb to the radio towers is very steep. It's also paved for a little over half of the ascent. If you go past the complex of radio and cell towers at the top of the paved section you can hit the ridge trail and it's a little less than half a mile south along the ridges to the highest point. Short and sweet, but you get pretty good views of Casa Grande, surrounding area, and mountains all around.

Lots of great hiking trails on CG Mountain, and the Arica Road trailhead gives you access to many of them.

We here in Casa Grande are so lucky to have this mountain right in our backyard. Great fun for all ages, whether you're interested in hiking or fitness or both.

Nice easy trail to get acclimated to desert hiking. No shade anywhere, need to bring enough water.

The trail seems longer than 7 miles RT. One of my mapping apps said it was 9 while another said 7.5 When we finished. Not sure why the difference but we did this hike New Year's Eve day in 2015 and the nearly 3000 feet of elevation gain was a lot--most of it at the end. It takes a long time to drive to the trailhead--Google Maps is not lying! No bikes or dogs allowed. This is wilderness. Best views are on the slopes on the way up. The views on top are not nearly so good.

This trail is further than these maps indicate. It is about 8.5 miles round trip. And the elevation gain is more than 2500 feet
