Ascent Trip Report

The road to Cliff Spring is in bad shape, starting with the descent into Petrified Wash. Once in the wash, the road is the wash for much of it, and as such can made impassible anywhere with a few boulders in the wrong places. Wherever you park, it's an enjoyable hike to the summit.

It might be due to recent wet weather, but the wildflowers were spectacular on my hike.
