Trail itself is a decent fitness run, but I always take the bolt trail up (it comes off the left side of the road after the first wash). Follow the spine of the mountain all the way to the flag. Definitely not easy, but not the most difficult either. It's local for me, so I try to do this one at least once a week.

A decent hike. You go up a jeep trail to a radio tower, where everyone else we saw turned back. It would have been boring if we had not chosen, once we got to the tower, to hike along the ridge, passing through a veritable forest of teddy bear cholla, to the true peak, which we espied from a distance with a flag on top of it flying in the wind from a flagpole. There we found the most tattered American flag we had ever seen and a cache (possibly a geocache) of tins containing guest books signed in Spanish and English. Glad we decided to go all the way to the peak. (Someone should replace that flag.)

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.
