Route: Take the Brushy Peak Loop Trail to the high point, then head uphill to the fence. Follow the fence to its high point. Hike up is exposed, but lots of shade at the top.
Red Tape: The summit is closed, unless you're on a guided tour, because it is a sacred space for the Native Americans. The high point of the fence is inside the activation zone, but requires off-trail travel to reach.
