From the intersection of Route 92 and US 83 just east of Stapleton, drive west on Route 92 for 5.4 miles to a driveway to a ranch on the north side of the road. This is the Stanford Hansen Ranch and these folks were incredibly friendly and helpful. Mr. Hansen gave me directions for driving about 5 miles north on ranch roads that got me to within 0.6 mile of the highpoint. Some of these farm tracks are quite challenging, especially the hilly sections where the sand has eroded in the tracks. You may opt to park early and walk in. At the 5.1 mile mark from the ranch, there is a windmill where you should park. The highpoint and BM Birnbaum are about a 20 minute hike northwest from the windmill. The BM is intact and there are whole turtle shells on top (hawk food?).
