Ascent Trip Report

From Hesperia followed Bowen Ranch Road, then Coxey Truck Trail until reaching parking near Rattlesnake Mountain. Could not find use trail from road, so just went cross country up slope to summit. I found some segments of use trail, but could not consistently stay on track. Found register. Went cross country back to parking. I would not recommend taking Coxey Truck Trail in 2WD Passenger Sedan.
