Shortly after the road turns left, a samller road forks left up the ridge to Modjeska Peak. This location is N33.71376, W117.55211, elevation about 1530 meter.
Follow this road to the summit.
I made a side trip to this peak while returning from Santiago Peak. Just where the road crosses over to the left (when looking uphill) side of the mountain, I left the road and went directly uphill following an area that had been cleared. The ascent took 15 minutes. I spent 5 minutes on top, then returned to the main road in another 15 minutes. I followed the road all the way on my descent and got a nice view down to my trailhead and car from the upper section of the road.
