“Tough but worth it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

My husband and I got into state high peaks a few years ago, so evertime we have an opportunity we hike (or drive) to a state high point. Since we were in Arizona last week visiting the Grand Canyon, we decided to take on Humphrey's Peak. I have to admit it's not one of the easiest hikes. It's almost 10 miles round trip to the top (12,637 feet) gaining over 3,300 feet along the way. The last mile involves climing over a lot of boulders and loose scree - all uphill. Ah, but once you reach the top the views are incredible! There was even a wooden bench at the top...how in the world did it get up there??! As a side note, the information we found on the trail said to start at the ski lift area. When we got there, we found out that the trailhead no longer starts there. There's a parking lot before you reach the skilift which is clearly marked, so the round trip hike is closer to 10 miles.
