Ascent Trip Report

We drove in 6 miles on Pinyon Mountain road to the 4 wheel drive trailhead mentioned in the HPS Guide for Route 2. The road was very sandy and rough in places, so you should have a high clearance 4x. Next, we followed a short canyon to a flat area, where we picked up a well defined use trail that went to the top.
