About 2/3 way through the hike, at about 1/4 the elevation. Trail goes from gully w/small rocks (here) to a little steeper with larger rocks, pretty quick.  The modestly steeper section is only about 400m of hike.

South end of the trail. Arizona evenings can't be beat. Don't let the paved trail fool you - 10-20% grades...coming within a half mile.
