starting from the road, the trail is easy to follow, until it disappears. by that point, the ridge line and summit is obvious. takes a bit of figuring out how to get from A to B, but manageable. the Ridgeline is good without having too much exposure (in low wind), and you can find a good scree line down for the descent. at the end of the scree, STAY LEFT to avoid a waterfall/cliff. you'll find a web of trails in the trees - one of which will take you back home. it's best to have some GPS or other tools to help navigate
