Beautiful view from the top! Not much of a trail though. I just drove all the way to the top.

technically a fire road, I drove up it in my rav4. there's a Denali and LTE up here. Frost just hit, its cloudy but cool at 37 degrees at 1pm. Would drive it for fun again but hiking might not be fun with hunting going on in the area. also, getting here is not for the weak of heart. One lane road from sugarloaf on and dirt after Portuguese pass, passing is interesting and speeds are slow. However, the top is breathtaking.
