As technical as you want to make it. Vistas that go for days.
Most users take the Tripod North after the cattleguard as Tripod (Main) simply terminates on Riddle Rd

Access Info

From Sidewinder, there is a nearly obvious fork in the trail (Sidewinder makes a hard 90 degree turn). When climbing, Tripod is on the right of the T-intersection heading southwest.
