Greens Peak

Greens Peak

Greens Peak is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 3.078m (10,099ft) above the sea level, located in Apache County, in the northeast corner of the U.S. state of Arizona. It's one of the highest mountain roads of Arizona.

The road to the summit, located within the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest is gravel and rocky. It’s called Greens Peak Road. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Expect a trail pretty steep. Visitors should be prepared for high altitude conditions. Summertime temperatures average 70 degrees but can drop as low as 30 degrees at night or during the frequent summer afternoon thunderstorms. High winds frequently occur. It’s impassable in winters. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. The road is well-graded hard-pack and suitable for passenger vehicles in dry conditions. Atop the peak there are several radio towers and lookout constructed in 1962 replacing an Aermotor MC24 look-out built in 1933.
