Summary:  This hike circles around the top of Doe Mountain

Challenge Level:  Moderate

Hiking Distance:  About 2.6 miles round trip

Trailhead Location:  The parking area is located on Boynton Pass Road. The parking area serves the Doe Mountain and Bear Mountain hikes.

Description:  The hike is somewhat steep to get to the top of Doe Mountain. You�ll be hiking up switchbacks. And there are places where the trail is narrow with large drop-offs. As you approach the top, you�ll be passing through a narrow slot in the rocks.

Doe Mountain provides great views in all directions. Make sure you are wearing hiking boots to protect your ankles form the cactus you�ll be stepping over. We attempted to fly some kites on our April 2011 hike. Here's a link to a the video of that hike (
