Marshall Peak and Marshall Saddle - 4.11.2017

We started this hike/scramble at the Marshall Gulch Trailhead... using Marshall Gulch Trail #3... driving through the community of Summerhaven high on Mt. Lemmon to find the trailhead.
There was running water in Marshall Gulch.
The 1.2 mile hike in Marshall Gulch was mostly in the trees.
After hiking 1.2 miles we arrived at Marshall Saddle... we will turn left (south) and follow Aspen Trail #93 back to the car... making a nice loop trip out of the hike.
Near Marshall Saddle we are looking up toward the Mt. Lemmon summit... the rock formation in the left-center of the photo is Rappel Rock... Lemmon Rock Lookout sits high up on the large rock outcropping on the far right in the photo.
Looking over toward Window Peak from Marshall Saddle.
After hiking on Aspen Trail #93 for a quarter-mile or so I decided to leave the maintained trail and head up to the NW summit of Marshall Peak.
Nearing the NW summit (8296') of Marshall Peak I can look out to the Wilderness of Rocks below Lemmon Rock Lookout... with Window Peak in the distance on the left.
Returning to the maintained trail from the NW summit of Marshall Peak I can see Tucson out in the valley.
After returning to Aspen Trail #93 I continued another quarter-mile or so and left the maintained trail and headed for the SE summit of Marshall Peak... I decided to do both summits because I didn't know which of the two was higher.
This is the SE summit (8306') of Marshall Peak... I have rarely seen a more lousy summit in my life... per my GPS it is 10 feet higher than the NW summit.
Returning from the SE summit of Marshall Peak... the views are better than those on the actual summit.
Continuing on Aspen Trail #93... heading for the car now.
Almost back to the car on Aspen Trail #93... looking across upper Sabino Canyon to some cabins on Syke Knob.
Closing our loop hike at the trailhead for Aspen Trail #3... we started the hike on Marshall Gulch Trail #3 which is located a stones throw from this trail sign... the entire trip was 4.6 miles, gaining 1258 feet of elevation.
