Ascent Trip Report

Drive north on Antares Road from Hwy 66 north of Kingman. My odometer tends to read a little low, but it showed 21.7 miles north to a right hand fork signed for Music Mountain Ranch. Though you could continue another 3 miles to Tenny Ranch Road, the Music Ranch road is better. Follow it 3.1 miles to where the Tenny Ranch Road joins it. A bit beyond this sign into the register permitting your access across private ranch lands, and pick up a pass for your dashboard. Just beyond the ranch buildings (away from the main road) at about 4200' is a sign limiting further access to 4WD vehicles. Continue to the ~5500' saddle at about 7 miles from Antares Road. This is where my GPS track starts.

Note: If conditions had not been so muddy I believe I could have continued my drive all the way around to the North Tank area for a much shorter hike. But this was not feasible with the conditions that day. It would be worth checking out with dry roads. The map at the register appeared to indicate that the entire driving route to North Tank was on publicly accessible lands.
