This is an easy wilderness trailhead to get to. One of the easiest I have been to in a while, actually. It does feel a little weird to me though, just pulling off the interstate and opening a gate. Access is easy if you are driving west on I8, but don't miss it. I didn't see another turnaround spot for a while. Driving east, there is a u-turn spot just past the trailhead.

Expecting to see no-one on this day, I was shocked to find a pickup truck at the trailhead. It wasn't long before we caught up with the lone hiker, and we hiked with him for a bit, until we left the wash to begin hiking up the ridge.

It turned out that the terrain up the side of the ridge was a little much for us today, between the rocks and the cholla, and after a short climb, we decided to return to the car without attempting the mountain. Still, I was able to claim credit for another wilderness area. Sadly, I did not get much in the way of pictures.
