Apache Peak

Apache Peak

Apache Peak is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 3.334m (10,938ft) above the sea level, located in Apache County, in northeastern Arizona in the United States. It's one of the highest mountain roads of Arizona.

The road to the summit, located within the Fort Apache Indian Reservation, is gravel and rocky. It’s a chairlift access trail of the Sunrise Park Resort. The slope is very steep, consists of loose stones and becomes even steeper and rocky in the upper part. This trail can be done only a very narrow time-frame in the summer (end of August). The wind is usually quite strong at mountain areas. High winds blow here all year long. Even in summer you can confront with snowy days. Temperatures here in the winter are brutally cold. The road to the summit is a ski-station service road pretty steep, with some sections up to 30%.
