Hiked the peak from Red Box with our Boy Scout troop. Hike to the saddle west of Lawlor is relatively easy, but that's when the fun starts. Trail climbs significantly during the last mile, and there are lots of yucca plants ready to poke your legs at every turn. Definitely bring a lunch! We went on an overcast day, so couldn't enjoy the views. Hiking staff recommended.

Did the peak from Red Box Ranger Station. Came in at 7.5 miles up and back. Nice hike. Not a great trail, but very good views once you reach the ridge. Views from the peak arent as good as when going up, but there's lots of room for a picnic (or a nap as some other hikers were doing). :)
Minor scrambling coming up this way. I met a couple of hikers who came up the difficult side, and they were spooked enough to take the long way back in order to avoid going back down the same way.
