From the parking spot at about 10,500', start heading up a footpath that starts at the road. The path is marked by a blaze
on a tree. If you can't find it, it's no big deal. Just start climbing up the forested slope. The slope is steep at first. The footpath helps, but it doesn't last for very long. We climbed up and to the right, and worked our way around to the northwest slopes of the mountain. After about 500', the slope moderated and we entered an open area
. We then climbed up and to the left, and made the final push up the grassy slopes
to the summit
. A large rock cairn marks the top.
Hiking Distance: About 3 miles round trip.
Elevation Gain: 1,100'.
