Notes from Karst: Shu and I were in the neighborhood. From the east we could not get there due to gates and private property issues.
From the west it is possible as Curtis showed. We stopped well short, at the start of a trail. We decided it was too difficult for us
and, if I remember correctly, too wet and slippery. Or maybe too rocky. There is also a possibility to go cross country north of the trail.

Notes from Curtis: The access I took was from US Hwy. 160 to FR 380 to FR 361 to Trail 842 to access the pass from the south. It was
about 1.7 miles from FR 361 to the pass on the Tewksberry Trail which is an ATV width trail. As noted by Karst, the entrance to the trail
is fairly rocky for a short distance and then there is another rocky section about 1/3 of the way in but pretty short. After that it is
relatively easy to the summit. I did not go down the north side, just bagged the pass and returned.
