The Climb

From the unsigned junction, hike southeast up an old 2-track road (narrow but drivable for a 4WD with medium clearance) to reach a saddle at a water tank. Continue left/east up the road to the rocky summit of Owinza Butte. The east summit is the high point. It is a barely perceptible hump when viewed from a distance.
