-The first mile of your hike will follow High Drive. High Drive starts at a gate on the east side of the parking lot.
-High drive climbs gradually, snaking to the north and eventually reaches a saddle or pass-like flat area.
-Look for the old stone “High Drive” sign to your left.
-At this pass, turn with your back to the “High Drive” sign and look for a faint, unmarked trail in the southeast corner of this pass, heading southeast. This is the Mays Peak Trail.
-The trail follows a gentle grade, heading first east then swinging north around the mountain, counterclockwise, in a corkscrew fashion.
-On the north side of the mountain the trail turns sharply south (on your left) and heads directly to the flat, mostly-open summit of Mays Peak.
