Ascent Trip Report

From Starlight Drive in Twentynine Palms, I drove south about 5.7 miles on Gold Park Road, JT 1901, JT 1905 and JT 1906, then turned left on an un-named road and drove another 0.4 miles, parking at a turn out about 0.1 miles before a locked gate. The roads require a high clearance 4x because of deep sand, rocks and ruts; also, the street names listed above in Twentynine Palms are from Google Maps and the dirt roads labled "JT" are all marked with signage. The hike is up a dirt road and then cross country though easy terrain except for some class 2 rocks near the top. The round trip time was 2 hours and 45 minutes, including a break on the top, and it's about a 35 minute drive each way to and from the trailhead. According to the peak register, the last ascent was in December 2012 by Bob Burd and Adam Jantz.
