If you have a high clearance vehicle (and the road's open), you can make this as short as a 1.5 mile/800ft gain outing. Take Genoa Peak Rd a couple miles out of the North Kinsgbury Trailhead parking lot, and park at a long flat straight-away in a field, with wooden posts along the side of the road and a green gate (this gate new as of Fall 2022). Hike up the gated road towards the top, stay right at the switchback, and the road will reach an apex with a memorial (Paradise Airlines Flight 901a) and a swing in a tree. From here follow a dirt bike trail very close to the summit, which some minor bushwhacking for the last 50 yards.
A nice few hours' hike with my sister. Trip Report.
Very hot day. Combined with Genoa Peak. Jogged some of the way up, and most of the way down. The snow is pretty much gone.
