"Rode the MTB up Modjeska and Santiago from Silverado Ranger Station. Maple Springs Road is an awesome ride, both up and down. The Main Divide Road, however, was covered with baseball-size rocks that made for a frustrating climb and a very bumpy descent." - klotito, Apr 21, 2018
"By the time I reached Modjeska Peak, I was rather worn down by the long hike. The cold day really helped to keep me going. At about 11 miles into my 4 peak loop hike, I summited Modjeska. I was rudely greeted with a sawed off sign post marking the summit. I didn't relax on the summit because it was really cold up there. Several plants on the summit were coated with ice.

"Ultimate workout day hike, roughly 20 miles round-trip of great scenery, bounds of beautiful shrubs and trees, which my camera could not capture since it died on me this week. I borrowed a buddy's cell phone so I could snap photos of this lofty, noble summit, and am still waiting for him to e-mail the photos so I can upload them to this site. I came up ascending the Silverado Fire Road/Motorway Switchbacks from the Maple Springs Trailhead area at Silverado canyon. Modjeska was the third of three peaks this day, the first being Bedford Peak (3,800'), then Bald Peak (3,947'), and ultimately a" - brianpowell, Dec 3, 2016
