Cone Peak Professional Review and Guide
"Cone Peak is one of the more dramatic and challenging summits of the southern Desert Divide. Its rocky turrets look foreboding from the Cedar Spring Trailhead, but the dense chaparral proves to be tougher than the clean granite. Although the peak is quite close to the trailhead, a ranch lies in between the two, so the direct route is closed to hikers even if they wished to brave the nearly impenetrable brush. Instead, this hike takes a circuitous approach east up the Cedar Spring Trail to the saddle, then northwest along the PCT, then southwest cross-country along a ridge to Cone Peak."
