East trailhead: 1.1 km north of Mesa Butte Campground.
Difficulty: Although someone has called the trail Mesa Grind, it's not really much of a grind, with easy hiking on good trails. Starting at the west trailhead is slightly shorter, with slightly less height gain.
Note: A popuplar destination for a full moon hike and, with the fire circle and tent space on top is a good first overnight with the kids. You'll need to carry water. See blog of winter walk that included Curley Sand
