Picacho Peak, Arizona – August 2022 – Redundant Name for A Unique Mountain

Picacho in Spanish means peak, so this mountain is basically Peak Peak. The highest peak rises 2,000 feet above the valley floor.

Picacho Peak is about 45 miles west of downtown Tucson, and is along I-10, the major route from Tucson to Phoenix and beyond.

For a number of reasons I hiked only to the saddle, a 300′ rise in about a mile one way.
