Finding the 4WD route to the TH in the dark was a bit of a problem since some of the "directions" I received were out-of-date. On the way out met a fellow who had spent the previous day trying to find the TH and was into his second day of attempts. At least I had a mental image of that for which I was looking since I had examined the Google Earth and Bing satellite photos earlier (as of this writing the Bing images happen to be far superior, at least on this one occasion). The hike is short but somehow I managed to go off trail in the pre-dawn and wound up scaling to the top of the hill. This is definitely a place from which to watch the sunrise. The GPS route posted herewith is the return route, but once you find the TH it is probably not necessary.
Quite an interesting location with a questionable history. After "playing" around with the camera after sunrise I was off to the Dogie Trail and the descent into Sycamore Canyon Wilderness.

Really cool place to explore. Road to it was fine in my Dodge Ram 1500 and I left it in 2 wheel the endire time. Just a little rocky and took it slow! Trail to the roost is not bad but the sandstone hill side was a bit sketchy for our 5 year old. Great views from up there!

Tried to find the trail head but was unable to find FR9530. I still had fun driving through the area and got out of the car and explored for a little while.
