Ascent Trip Report

Accessed using a dirt road that goes through the El Malpais National Conservation Area. The turnoff is marked and is about half mile past mile marker 31 on NM-117. There is a parking area and trail five miles in at Lobo Canyon. I proceeded on another half mile to a wide spot in the road near some stone house ruins. Hike is three miles one way to the HP. A cairn marks the HP which is located south west of the fenced in lookout tower. Summit log.
