Ascent Trip Report

There's a number of ways to get there - just check out a topo and satellite map and figure out which way you want to go. I went in from Kelbaker Road and came out on Essex Road. Along the way, I stopped at Hilltop House.

My hike ended up being about 8 miles round-trip with 3100' elevation gain including a side trip to the Providence Mine site. Overall, a fairly easy hike as far as desert peaks go and a really pretty area.
