great views from the top. getting to the top of the hill takes some scrambling. the last few hundred yards of the trail are not easy to follow.

We rolled into the trailhead to find the parking lot empty at 5:00 pm. Easy hike out to the foot of the Cockscomb, but we missed the fork for the summit spur thanks to sticks, logs and rocks obviously placed across the spur to obscure it. Not sure who would do that...

The hiker trail to the summit is steep, but easily followed. To the last step below the summit, that is. Might have been able to climb one of the few cracks, but with no rope or gear, didn't bother. Follow the shelf counterclockwise around the north end for an awesome view of the sunset.
