1st trip
I was wanting to bag a peak today, and this had been on my radar screen for a while, so off I went.

I followed the route that @hikerdw did on this one, except that we went a bit off-trail up to the summit of Pinyon Peak.

We did a clockwise loop starting from the Tule TH: we went first on the Tule Canyon Trail, then the Two Bar Ridge Trail, and then some forest roads almost all the way back, then an easy off-trail to get back to the TH.

On the way up to the summit I channeled my inner @FLYING_FLIVER and located the elusive azimuth mark. At the summit we located the triangulation station, aka benchmark, and located 2 reference marks. But wait, there's more: we found some wires that appeared to have been used for a height of light.

I thought that the views at the summit were among the best in the Supes, and we hung around there for a while.

Most any vehicle could make the easy drive to the TH. I thought that the trails were all in really good shape and were easy to follow.

It was near perfect weather for a hike, and we did not encounter any other hikers on the trails.

I did not see water anywhere out there, so make sure you bring enough if you are hiking or backpacking in this area.
