Nice hike/easy scramble with Kevin K.
Started from the gate on East side of stream and went up grassy/treed ridges from highway and joined East ridge about 1/3 the way up at a weakness. Almost stepped on a 6 foot garter snake in the rocks.
Followed ridge easily to top with some easy scrambling on rock but probably avoidable.
Summit has big cairn. went down west ridge and lost trail in broken rock and trees. trail swings off to east side and then back to west. follow ridge down to saddle and then follow old road or various shortcuts down to road.
Loop is 8.7 km and 760 m in relaxed 4.5 hrs.
