1.4 mile hike with 565' EG along gated FS Trail 135 from seasonally accessible Rattlesnake Gap (35.848, -82.944). This route is along a gated FS road and about 1/2 up the Walnut Mtn trail turns to the left. Taking the trail is shorter, but steeper and rejoins the road. This would be a good trailhead if you also planning on activating W4T/SU-029 - Round Mountain as well. **Note this track does not go to the actual summit, but to the gap between the true summit and the western summit, both of which are in the AZ.
