I drove up to Monica's Saddle and hiked from there along the road. It was 3-4 miles to the summit. The road is very gentle to the summit and easy to walk. The hike took about an hour give or take a few minutes to the summit. The views are wonderful at the top. I enjoyed the trip.
Note: After Monica's saddle it says "primitive road". I found the road getting their more primitive than this road (via highway 60). However, it has quite a bit of loose rock so you might spin the tires on occasion. The road from highway 60 to get to Monica's saddle (NFS 549) has blind curves, is very narrow, with steep drop-offs (in places), and has exposed rock and washboards. It wasn't all that bad to come up, but it was less fun to come down. Low gear came in handy. I'm not sure about the road heading south from Monica's saddle.
Twice we've come this way and twice have been slammed by storms. Did manage to drive the truck to the top... not really any hiking, but a fun drive. Planned to hike it on our second visit met with double whammy: storms, and an on-going closure due to fire danger. We'll be back. The VLA nearby is a neat place to visit.
I coaxed my Camry all the way to the top
