Follow directions to the Mt. Cutler trailhead in the Mt. Cutler trail route page. Continue past the Mt. Cutler trailhead and above Helen Hunt Falls to the end of the pavement to the gravel Gold Camp Road parking lot. This is the trailhead. Head uphill on Gold Camp Road for a little under two miles gaining about 300 feet in the process to the second large bend in the road.
A faint trail heads down from the outside of the bend to Daniels pass losing about 250 feet in the process. You may have to do a little searching as the trail is not obvious from the road. From Daniels Pass the trail climbs about 500 feet to the summit with the last few hundred feet being the same route as the Mt. Cutler trail route.
General hiking gear is appropriate as most of the route has southern or southwest exposure and remains relatively snow free except after recent snows.
