We were able to make it up the northern road in a Jeep Wrangler and parked at the northern of the three summits which has a register claiming that that summit is higher than the southern one. We went to all three summits. We also did 7475 (Saddleback Mountain), Beaver Mt, 8641, and 8220. The road is a nail biter at the end. The worst of it comes where it turns sharply left and a closed road lies ahead.
The northern road was gated so I took the southern road. I made it a little past Elk Spring and parked. There were two steep parts in the road and I thought it was best to hike from here. If you walk around the summit ridge you’ll be able to get views away from the forest.
"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."
