USGS Maiden Spring. DeLorme: p38/A2. S8-T11N-R24E.
We punctured our gas tank on the first attempt at this peak from the west,
then returned a few months later to try it from the east, following DeLormes Atlas N
out of Prosser to the "well" on Bennett Road. A fence and wildlife reserve sign
stopped the car short of the east summit. A perfectly walkable road leads to the top.
Crickets, sounding very much like rattlesnakes to those with imaginations, caused some worry.
