After you climb out of Sycamore's inner gorge, scramble to a steep saddle and curve around the northwestern shoulder of Turtle Mountain, 9,357 foot Monte Vista Peak comes into view. When you reach its summit, you will find a panorama that stretches well into Mexico and encompasses much of southeastern Arizona and a healthy chunk of southwestern New Mexico.
To make a round trip of your hike, just drop down the Monte Vista Trail into North Fork Canyon.
This trail is designated primitive and does not receive maintenance. It is not recommended for stock use.
