23-Oct-2019 -- I had already visited this point almost 8 years earlier, but decided to revisit it to get a ‘drone’s-eye’ view (and also because I remember it being especially scenic). I took the same route as before. For future visitors:
- Drive to N. Tecolate Road (also labeled "Tecolate Ranch Road") at [33.00090,-111.06455]. (Re-close the gate after entering.) A reasonably high-clearance 4WD vehicle is recommended on this road.
- Drive more than 4 miles to a corral. You can either park here, or continue (after passing through another gate) northeast along the dirt road (“N. Horse Ranch Road”) at [32.990260,-111.007397].
- Hike (or drive) about 0.4 miles along this dirt road, to the intersection with a powerline road at [32.994850,-111.002817].
- Hike northeast another 0.4 miles to reach the point, which lies on the top of a small ridge.
This is one of my favorite Degree Confluence Points in Arizona (surpassed only by [32,-113], in Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, near the Mexican border). It is quite easy to reach, with a nice variety of cactus growing nearby. I hope more people get the opportunity to visit this point; it deserves to be visited more.
Here is a remote-controlled aerial video of this confluence point.
