A BLM National Byway which climbs to the top of 5,681-ft. Harquahala Peak, the highest mountain in southwestern Arizona. At the top are two small parking areas with picnic tables. A hiking trail with information kiosks goes to an old 1920s observatory. Everything is open to unlicensed vehicles and there are several fun side roads to explore. You can also camp overnight in designated locations.

The steeper upper part of the trail has gotten more chewed up and rocky. Since a short section is paved up there, they could be doing more of that in the future. Until then, this part of the trail should be considered moderate.
