Short trail up to the Fire Lookout on Hailstone Butte. There is a minor scramble to make it past the rock-band just prior to the ridge top. Be prepared for windy conditions.

Great short hike to fantastic views to the area surrounding Hailstone.
Once you get to the rock band below the fire lookout, you can go left and scramble or go right across the scree field then up through a shorter rock band. Personally I go left. This was my first SOTA (Summits On The Air - ham radio) solo activation.
