Probably one of the best dirt road approaches of any DPS peak. We consolidated into Greg's truck to get to the trailhead, but any passenger car can make it to this trailhead easily. Our descent route from the peak (more southerly track on the gps file) was much easier than the more northerly ascent route. There were patches of use trail to follow. Additionally, the canyon we ascended from the palm trees/parking spot had a very good use trail, very easy to follow up the canyon to about 2800 ft.
