Ascent Trip ReportOne Tree Peak is an easy ascent and easy to drive to also. From the junction of Hwy 82 and Hwy 24, zero your odometer and go south on Hwy 24. At mile 5.9 turn west on signed Cuevo Canyon road, at mile 14.4 turn left on signed Chimney Canyon Road, at mile 16.8 pass the Otero County Line post, at 17.0 pass Dog Canyon on the right and go straight, at 18.5 miles park at Sunflower Canyon at about 6,300 ft. There is a little ranch road on the left through the barbwire fence. I should have let myself in and driven up the canyon another mile. The road is good.
I hiked up the canyon and at the second water trough, left the road and hiked straight ahead up the hill. No route finding issues here, just uphill. Great views including snow covered Sierra Blanca to the northwest. There were some friendly cows along the hike. About 12 of them followed me all the way back down to the gate.
