Ascent Trip Report

The road to this trailhead is not bad- high clearance is very helpful (maybe necessary), but it really could use signage- it's not easy to spot from highway 89.

The trail ascending first to Armstrong Saddle, then to the peak is great. There is even a decent use trail going to Jobs Sister.
