I know there is a road to the top but I needed some good exercise so I tackled it via cross country. I wouldn't recommend the way I went up but it worked for me. I walked the road back down and it was monotonous and made me wish I had gone back down the way I went up. I found the hang glider spot a bit unnerving. I don't know how you can "launch" yourself into the air from spots like that. The Frisco Peak benchmark is located not far from the ramp and is right in the middle of a road. Weird. Towers dominate the peak but the views from the top are great.
