Fun experiment for the day on this peak. Locked a bike up at the North Ben Tyler TH, then drove down to the Payne TH outside Bailey. Followed the trail up and did a traverse from Payne BM, No Payne, Shawnee, and Platte Peak, back down the the bike. 5-6 mile ride back to the car. Never saw another person all day.
