My last trip to this mountain was 22 years ago on December 20, 1994. It is a long was down North Divide Road from the Ortega Highway. As with Los Pinos Mountain, a passenger car might make it but it is not advised. I actually was glad to have the compound low 4×4 in Whitedog for stability and traction.
A fire had swept over this peak quite a few yeas ago and you can see that it was once very brushy. Now it is covered with regrown brush and the charred bones of the old brush. Not a pleasant hike with very little room to set up the station. For this if gets no stars from me.
