Ascent Trip Report

The peak is in the Los Coyotes Indian Reservation, and access to it is granted only on weekends. After paying a $9 fee at the entrance station, With my 2000 Toyota Avalon, I drove to within about 3/4 of a mile of the summit, after which I could not get the car up a steep section. Beautiful views from the top.

(Unfortunately, as I realized much later, I didn't visit the actual top, which was a few feet below and a few minutes from the lookout area that I visited, so I've changed this trip to "unsuccessful." Oh, well. Another visit will not be so bad!)
