The summit can be reached by FST-539 on the Forest Service topo map and FS-502 on the trailhead sign, which begins on the north side of Burnt Knob. See the Burnt Knob page to learn how to access the trailhead. The trail crosses a lot of burned terrain and was in need of maintenance in August of 2017. The trail drops down from the trailhead. The trail soon takes a hard right and switchbacks down toward the Burnt Knob Lakes. This turn was hidden by downed trees. I added two cairns and covered the false trail with a rock and dead wood. See my GPS track. The trail soon regains the ridge top and then switchs from side to side as it moves toward the peak. It is 1.8 miles with 375 feet of gain to reach the summit.
