Route DescriptionFrom the parking area just head up the dirt road. At one point the road splits, here you will head right, continuing uphill. After the split you will find a fence across the road. Go left around the fence onto the trails. The trail parallels the road for a while then moves left away from the road but continues to switchback up the hill. Stay on this trail all the way to the top. Not far below the summit you will be able to see the towers on the top.
