Neat area and very remote. Highly recommend a 4x4 or high clearance vehicle to reach trailhead. The first quarter mile is not well-marked. Look out for rock cairns for route-finding. Trail is gradual but not well-maintained. Got lost about 2/3rds of the way up and turned around due to lack of a clearly-defined trail. Did about 6 miles total.

Extremely rough road to trailhead. Trailhead is marked, but the trail is essentially nonexistent.
