The Trail starts in Cunningham Gulch and Steeply climbs up Dives Basin. Finding the trail head could be difficult. Find a way across the creek and if you cannot find the trail, just start heading up and you will intersect it. This trail in unmaintained and fades oin and out once your high into the basin. The trail will lead to the saddle between King Solomon and Little Giant Peak. This saddle has many interesting crystals covering it. From the saddle make your way northeast up the ridge line of king Solomon Mtn. The Ridge is an easy scramble up to the thin peak.
