Approach


The trail head starts at the north side of the Charcoal Kilns parking area just to the west of the last kiln.

Route Description


Bear northwest as the trailhead begins. The trail follows this direction and rounds a rock outcropping where the trail then turns to the northeast. The route follows a well developed path above a small drainage gulley. As the gulley steepens and begins to turn north, the trail diverges due east to a visible saddle pont. From here the trail bends north behind a small hill. This path continues up towards the small dual peaks now visible. After a short climb up the east-most peak to gain the contour, the trail begins the climb to the summit plateau. After several switchbacks, the summit plateau is reached and a short hike north gains the true summit where a summit register awards the climber's success.

Essential Gear


No essential gear is required in non-snow conditions. In snow conditions, gaiters are recommended and depending on how fresh the powder is snowshoes could provide help but are not required. Because of the location of the peak east of the Sierras the snow fall is generally light.
