Ghost Mountain and Marshall South Homesite
Start by reading the interpretive panel at the trail head. The Trail, which begins on the south side of the small parking lot, is a steep climb up a rocky slope of Ghost Mountain to the Marshal South Homesite. The trail is not marked in any way so follow the foot-worn, steep switch-back path to the top. At the top the path levels off. Follow the level path .1 miles along the ridge up over a boulder trail to your destination.
The South family lived on the Mountain for 16 years during the 30s and 40s and carried everything, including water, up to the homesite.
Marshal and Tanya moved permanently to the mountaintop. Before long, they christened their encampment Yaquitepec. Properly pronounced YAK' ee te peck' (according to Marshal), the name simply meant “hill of the Yaqui,” a reference to a tribe of “fiercely freedom-loving” Indians in Sonora, Mexico.
