Ascent Trip Report

Note that Homestead Ranch Road can only be approached from the north (road is closed from the south with a locked corporate gate).

After turning off Homestead Ranch Road (a generally good dirt road), the road gets challenging quickly, and it does not appear to be maintained, so it may well become impassible soon, making this a much longer hike. If you can get past the lower sections, it does get better higher up.

As for the hike, having taken both approaches, I strongly recommend the southwest ridge (the direct route)- the longer route doesn't really provide any benefits- parts of it a more gradual, but as the direct route is not very steep anyway, that does not compensate for the elevation loss and regain, or the additional mileage.
