Description

At the top of Wind Cave Trail, there is a sign that states the trail is not maintained. This trail is not marked, but there are some cairns that guide your way up to a couple of peaks in the Goldfields. One of the peaks is at 3,300 feet and is the third highest peak in the Goldfields. Expect great views! The descent to Pass Mountain Trail is not marked, but doable with the Trail Run Project mobile app.

Large nest of Africanized Bees. Encountered while heading up to the Pass Mountain Route. There is no place to run if these guys get mad.

Enjoy this view from the cave at the trail's end. The Fountain Hills are located in the distance to the right.

This is the narrow top of Pass Mountain. Lots of scrambling over and around rocks.
