Browns Peak is the highest, northernmost summit of Four Peaks, the prominent group of peaks at the southern end of the Mazatzal Mountains and within Four Peaks Wilderness. Most of the hike is on trail, but the ascent of the peak requires cross-country travel, and the summit involves a short rock scramble. Since Four Peaks is visible from so many places in the Phoenix area, you would expect the views from this 7,657-foot summit to be panoramic, and you won’t be disappointed. This is the highest hike in this book. surface: Dirt and rocks.
