Most people do not approach the La Sals from Beaver Basin-- it is quite remote and also 4WD-- a limiting factor. A popular approach to Pilot Mtn is from the Oowah Lake/Warner Lake Areas. Many folks take the trail up to the Gold Knob Divide, and then ascend Pilot Mountain along the long southwestern ridge. The last part of the hike is a bit of a scramble over some VERY steep talus, but the summit is quite rewarding.
