Likely In-Season!
I decided to approach this hike from the Southwest side of Hochderffer Hills. From Fire Road 151E, GPS Coordinates 35.36883 -111.76559 start the bushwhack up the side of the mountain following the ridgeline as much as possible. The heading is east by southeast. After your initial ascent, the hike levels out considerably. You will eventually reach a fence line that you can follow almost to the summit. Pines cover the entire hike with little exposure.

If open proceed on 151E to a barbed wire second gate. There is a sign at this gate indicting the road is not maintained for passenger vehicles (which is true). Proceed through the gate and drive along 151E for about 2.3 miles to a fork in the road - GPS Coordinates 35.36883 -111.76559 - where you can park and start the hike.
