The trail was hard to find and follow. Had to take a bumpy dirt road to get to the trailhead.

An easy to drive to location. Park by the radio towers then follow the foot path to the peak. A small steep section on the first climb then once on the actual peak the views of the blooming flowers could be seen for miles.
