Very rocky switch backs, finish on fire road, the top can be tricky to navigate at first.

Access Info

Start along the southern fence of the military base, ride along the fire road that follows the fence and then turn off on hard to find single track that forks left away from Joes Bench. A 4x4 can shuttle from the fire road finish, there's a bench and view point that makes a good pick-up point.
