Though we didn't stay, my friend and I hiked up to this incredible place about a year ago. It seem that at one point in time you could drive up with a high clearance vehicle, but there were rocks and fallen trees in the road on our way up. Breathtaking views, and pretty sure you may not have any neighbors. NO WATER.

I hear there is a Spring on the mountain, I could not find it. So make sure to pack in water.
