Definitely a winner! A beautiful, isolated peak with a slickrock base that is very fun to explore. You'll probably share this hike with very few people, if you see anyone at all. I hiked from Willow Springs which made it a longer hike, but don't let that deter you; Rocky Gap Road is pretty easy (if a bit boring) to walk and the time goes by quickly. I did this hike earlier in the year; I would not recommend attempting this hike during the hotter months.

great hike, not a fan of walking up rocky gap road. Once I reached the actual trail head it was a beautiful 2+ mile hike to the summit. Afterwords took a detour towards Bridge mountain but did not complete. Got to hidden forest.

Parking at Willow Springs and walking up the gravel track takes about four hours if you have lunch at the top. There is a boulder about 100m from the end of the trail that provides a great photo opportunity, if you have a head for heights.

Awesome hike. Wont take long at all if you take a 4x4 high clearance vehicle to the trail head. But if you park at the bottom on the scenic drive and hike up Rocky Gap Road like I did, that part alone takes 90-120 minutes one way. It's worth it. The view is 10/10, and the terrain is pretty gradual with almost 0 scrambling. Trail is easy to find/follow.

I started at the base of Willow Springs Picnic area which added about 6 miles to the 2.6 mile hike. The initial ascent is on a 4x4 road until you get to the trailhead. Beautiful hike with breathtaking view from the summit.
