Pushed up mountain bike as the trail was quite steep. Downhill was nice, though. Can be done as a side trip to the Flume trail.
As noted is other posts, you can mountain bike almost to the top. I took a cross country route of the King's Canyon road and hiked northeast to the peak, but the thick brush in parts was a nuisance.
A pretty easy hike, can be done on a bike, too. Very short trip report
I decided that this would make a good snowshoe hike but didn't need the shoes until near the summit as the snow was consolidated enough to hold my weight. The views from the summit were outstanding and were really special over towards Lake Tahoe. Mt. Rose to the north, Mt. Tallac and Freel Peak were visible to the south as well as all of the other peaks that ring Lake Tahoe.
