Picketpost Mountain is a stunning mountain that rises nearly 2,000 feet from the town of Superior, Arizona. It’s a stand alone mountain that’s on the Arizona Trail. The top is a fairly large mesa with a cast iron bench, a mailbox, and Gumby left by previous visitors.
The trail takes you up a gully between the cliffs and has a bit of scrambling as it works through the cliffs. It’s a fun climb right up the mountain and the trail is not maintained so it’s hard to follow at times. I lost it quite a few times and had to do a little climbing.
