From the St. Marys Pass TH on CA 108 about a west of Sonora Pass, I followed the jeep track and unmaintained trail 1.2 miles to St. Marys Pass, then made my way up over a bump and across a plateau to climb the SW talus slopes of Sonora Peak. I encountered some use trails on the way. Great views of the northern Sierra from the top.
