This hike is in the (100 hikes) book and one of the County (La Paz) high points. :y:
The directions for this one are good. The gate is easy to miss and the dirt road drive is 2.2 miles. There are trail signs on both sides of the gate and at both forks in the road. My (flying) Focus made it with only spinning a tire once (Driver error). There is parking for plenty and even a vault toilet at the trailhead with horse trailer parking 4/10 of a mile back.
The first trail mile is an old rocky road with an easy grade. It turns into trail by the second mile and gets more rocky but not much steeper. The next three miles of trail have a pretty good tread in my opinion. Even the grade is pretty good for the amount of gain with maybe half of the last mile a little steep. Your on the shady side of the mountain for 4 of the miles if you start at a decent hour. Interesting area and not a bad hike. :)
