Ascent Trip ReportI started from Hwy 107 on the Big Bend trail and took a shortcut via eroded forest road down to the Foothills trail. I walked around the mountain and headed up the northwest ridge. The way is mostly clear other than tons of small bushes. I summited and then hiked down the east ridge to the forest road shortcut. In hindsight, going all the way around the mountain wasn't the smartest idea. I thought the northwest ridge was the easiest way up based on satellite images but the east ridge is actually easier, just a bit steeper. I recommend going up and down the east ridge.
