Seegmiller Mountain, AZ Strip

Seegmiller Mountain is a short side trip from the main dirt road from St. George to Mount Trumbull Schoolhouse. Good for a couple of hour round trip from St. George. Here's the Benchmark map:




Extra gas wasn't needed for this trip, but I often carry it on the AZ Strip. Never sure what opportunities might present themselves.




The turnoff to Seegmiller Mountain is well marked. Route #1069 is the main dirt road from St. George south, similar to a dirt highway. After reaching the top of Quail Canyon there is a modest descent to the left (east). The road becomes more dirt and less gravel. At the bottom of the short decline is the signed intersection to Seegmiller Mountain.




Dad and I got our schedules synched up. He's along on this ride. Always good to have partner on the AZ Strip.




Weather was overcast and blustery, but no real threat of rain. Turned out to be quite a good afternoon of riding. Thanks, Dad!




Some radio transmission equipment at the top of Seegmiller Mountain.




Warning sign. Didn't hang around here very long.




A short distance away still on the summit ridge line. Fantastic views down to the east. Lots of rugged terrain.




We skirted further around to the south and east of Seegmiller Mountain. Looking back. Radio tower visible on summit. Seegmiller Mountain is very recognizable from St. George, but not possible to see the radio tower without binoculars. East face of Seegmiller has some dramatic exposed red/orange/yellow rock.




Returning back towards Quail Canyon and Route #1069. Always great to be out with Dad!




Thanks for dropping by, inmates and lurkers.
