Approach


Warner Lake Campground is the trailhead. You take the Miner's Basin trail, which crosses the Gold Knob Divide, the high pass between the two areas. It is a fairly steep, but steady and well-beaten path. IT shouldn't take more than an hour to reach the Gold Knob Divide.

Route Description


From the Gold Knob Divide (The high saddle that the trail between Miner's Basin and Warner Lake reaches), turn right (southeast) and follow the obvious ridge all the way up to Pilot Mountain. At times it is a grunt, and there are some bumps in the ridge that one will have to cross in order to continue on the ridge (this will require some elevation loss). The crux of the route is a VERY steep talus scramble to get onto the summit-- it is quite a steep climb, and you will be huffing and puffing by the time you reach the peak. But the view is clearly worth it.

Essential Gear


Water. Lots of it.
