The actual summit of Berrian Mountain is wooded with no views. Peakbaggers will do the true summit once to collect their 900 foot plus prominence gem but probably never go up this nice mountain again and touch the summit. There are many trails up the mountain within the DMP lands but all converge on the open saddle between this pinncale formation and the main ridge to the true summit. There is no formal trail to the summit it is a bushwhack and most simply stop at the 9,000 foot contour and the trail junctions and climb up the 45 foot pinnacle shown and take in the very good views. This summit is worthy to come back and enjoy the views from this class 2+ to 3 overlook while the true summit at 9147 is really a one time deal to scratch off your list for its prominence.
