Ascent Trip Report

Our group drove to the end of the 4x road in Bendire Canyon to 5000' in elevation; the last 2.5 miles of the road is extremely rough. We then hiked up the old miners trail in Bendire Canyon, which turned into a Burro trail higher up in the canyon, to a large duct at 7320' in elevation; we then went up the ridge to the top. Our group returned to the car via Parkinson Peak and a ridge that led directly back to the car.
