Great hiking and 4 wheeling with fabulous views along with petroglyphs. Saddle Mountain is one of the last places in central Arizonia that offers unbelievable solitude, positioned near metropolitan Phoenix and butting up against the development that fans out from major artery I-10 west. The side canyons that surround and penetrate the two mountain masses that form the saddle provide a remoteness that carries visitors away from the hustle and bustle of city and sprawling suburban centers. Rugged canyons, towering cliffs, and rock spires offer spectacular scenery and a sense of escape from modern life.
Saddle Mountain Dispersed BLM. South off W Courthouse Rd. Between mile marker 12 and 13 across the 50 mph sign, stay to the left to get to the foot of the mountain. Check out the spots at N33.45407,W113.057
