Although the trail to the peak is steep and very dry, expect to see deer, elk, and small game in the summer. From the parking area, the single-track trail quickly begins its easy-to-follow ascent through scrub oak and grass. As the trail winds up Andrews Ridge, it offers a view of the looming mountain above to the northwest, and Nebo Basin to the north. The switchbacks lead to the mountain ridge where the Willow Canyon Trail enters from the left. From here the trail offers a view of Juab County below to the west and Loafer Mountain to the north.
