I was having a grand time driving up the road but my wife and son were unnerved by the exposure so we parked and hike the last 300 feet or so. The mountain is just a big pile of rocks but the lookout perched up there is pretty impressive. Pretty sure it is the highest lookout in the state. Great views for sure
I always obey imperative commands, so we parked at the sign as told. Then after a slight detour to White Mountain, hiked the road to the summit. Easy walking on the road (don't try shortcutting the switchback- the road banks are awful).
Drove 4Runner up to about 9,400 feet at which point exposure forced me to park. Sign said "park here". Then walked road last 1.5 miles/900 ft to permanently manned lookout on top. Did in evening so it provided very nice views of surrounding ranges in a different light.
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
