Start heading north towards the peak while rounding west around a knoll. A small trail can be found through the scree, follow this to the base of the summit.

Beginning of the "trail"

Across the road from the parking area are several sections of crude split rail fence. My partner and I constructed 3 cairns which should give one a decent start in the right direction. This cairn construction took place on October 16, 2015 and was compensated at a rate far far lower than minimum wage! Happy hiking.
