Schuerman Mountain Trail #56 is a good trail that climbs gently for 0.2 miles to the base of the low mountain, then bends to the left and begins a moderately steep climb up the east flank and onto the basaltic lava of this old volcano. Nice views. The trail turns right (west) into a small drainage and continues to climb, emerging on a low saddle at 0.5 miles where it intersects a north/south trail. Turn right (north) and follow the path as it climbs gently for 0.25 miles to the mountain's high point. Go a bit further to the edge for incredible panoramic views.

Return to the junction with the upcoming trail. For more great views, continue ahead for 50 yards to a well-defined fork. The right branch crosses the top of the mountain and drops down to Lower Red Rock Loop Road. Take the left fork (east), which gently climbs, ending after 0.33 miles on a point of land among large basalt blocks. This vantage point offers lovely views all around. Return by the same route. This trail is unshaded and can be hot in summer.
