To get to the Trail Head, you need to take O'Hara Road (NM-404) from I-10 or from Martin Luther King Blvd (NM-213). At about 5 miles you will find a gate in front of the sign marking the beginning off the Sierra Vista Trail, this gate is the same entrance to Anthony Gap Cave road. Drive until you find the parking area, then using the same road, walk in direction to the mountain. You will cross two small arroyos. After them you will find the beginning of the trail to your right. Be careful because the beginning is not very well marked. Follow the trail. In about a mile, when the trail starts going south, step out the track and continue on the arroyo. At that moment you will see in the distance the small range that is part of this hike. You keep walking toward that range until you get to a fence, and to your right, you will find a very old and rustic gate that you need to cross. Continue on the arroyo until you reach the foot of the range. Here the hiking consist on walking the range rim. When you finish this part, you will get to the place where the Lower Sunset Trail join together with the Northern Pass Trail. You direct yourself toward the mountain by the Northern Pass Trail, but instead of going up, you turn to your left following the foothill part of the trail. Eventually you will get to the point were you abandoned the trail to go to the small range. Follow your steps back and soon you will be back where your started. Show more
