You can park at the side of a public road and walk to the top of this mountain or walk over from the public access on Utsayantha. However, the entire mountain and the ridge it is located on are on private property. The people in this area seem more than willing to grant permission for hikers but it is necessary to ask. GET PERMISSION.
There are several woods roads that ascend this mountain from different directions. By the time they near the top of the mountain they may become choked with prickers making them almost impassable. On my ascent the roads were in good condition and open near the bottom but I eventually left the road as it became infested with prickers. Walking up the STEEP hillside seemed preferable! I regained the road near the top but it did not ascend to the summit. The summit is relatively flat. Depending on your route it may make sense to asp bag NW Moresville along with this peak as long as you are already up there!
