Vulture Peak is one of those nice little surprises that dot southwestern Arizona. Jutting skyward a few miles south of Wickenburg, this rugged and rocky summit stands as an alluring target for hikers. Just 2.5 miles in length, the Vulture Peak Trail climbs to a saddle just below the summit. From there experienced hikers can attempt the top by way of a short but rugged scramble.
