Turn onto Laycock Creek Rd from Hwy 26. After 10.4 miles, turn right on NF844. In 0.3 miles, keep right, and in another 0.8 miles, keep left. Turn left at NF853 and follow to the end. NF 853 is high clearance. An atv track starts at the end of the road and goes close to the summit. It is signed for no unauthorized motor vehicles but is easy walking.
Steep bushwhack out of Riley Creek Canyon. Started out sunny, but dark skies moved in out of the north. Neat area, need to spend more time in the canyon below, big cliffs and waterfalls.
