HIKING ROUTE 1

  • From the parking area (6660'), hike down a jeep road that starts at the parking area, following it down into a saddle, and then around the southwest side of elevation 6670' to another saddle at 6000'. The jeep road (in very poor condition) makes six switchbacks up the face of Antimony.
  • At the high point of the road, go to the right cross-country up the ridge about 1/4 mile to the summit.
