Cool little hike!
The path shown on the map is nowhere close to the actual trail though. Starting at the parking area, I followed what appears to be an ATV trail to the summit from which you can enjoy expansive, but not very dramatic views.
On the descent, I tried to follow the gps line on the map shown here, but that was kind of a mistake. That path follows a steep course with loose footing and rock slides. After some slow scrambling, I bushwhacked it back to the summit, where I noticed a series of pink tape perhaps marking the trail down.
Followed those, but they veered off away from the parking area, so I bushwhacked it again back to my car.
Phew! Some good exercise and nice views.
