This is a challenging full-day hike with an elevation gain of 3,200 feet to the apex of an iconic, aptly named peak in the southern Grapevine Mountains. From the parking area Corkscrew Peak dominates the skyline several miles away to the northwest. The route begins toward the right (east) side of the peak. There isn’t an official trail, but most of this popular climb is served by an easy-to-follow user-created trail, except at the very beginning. Recent flooding has erased portions of the trail in the Boundary Canyon wash.
