The Harquahala Pack Trail is an extremely steep 5.4 mile hike to the summit of Harquahala Mountain. The trail was used to access and transport supplies and equipment to the Harquahala Peak Observatory. After the observatory was abandoned in 1925, this historic trail continued to serve miners and ranchers attempting to wrest a living from the rugged and isolated Harquahala Mountains.
