An easy trail leads to the top. Allow about 4 hours round trip. Those with passenger vehicles will have to start further back and this will add mileage and time to the trip.

Getting There

See the main text to get yourself to the trailhead.

Route Description

Follow a fine trail north into a well-defined canyon. You will cross at least one gate along the way. The trail is easy to follow and obvious. However, it is not shown on the topozone map link, and may only be shown on the latest maps. In any case, you should be fine if you pay attention. The trail generally stays south of the summit, switchbacking with long traverses up the southerly-facing slopes, before working its way to the west-facing slopes. One long switchback leads to the very top, where you will have to pick your way around the rocks and buildings for the true tippy top.

Essential Gear

Water and good boots. Lots of rock. Lots of cactus and potential for snakes, too. This is also bear country. All that being said, you'll probably not see a thing.
