Ascent Trip Report

The road from the north was not too bad- passenger car friendly until the Rock Canyon group campground, then high-clearance, except perhaps one large hole filled with water that needed to be crossed.

This was a VERY steep hike, but there was only one relatively short section where the terrain was bad (loose dirt and small rocks). The start of the trail from the ATV track is marked by a large (2 foot tall) cairn. From there the trail is easy to follow to the summit, though in places the trail is overgrown with the lush vegetation.

The views both on the ascent and at the summit are great.
