There are five SOTA Peaks near Bouquet Reservoir: Bee (CT-169), Jupiter (CT-140), Grass Mtn (CT-130), Burn (CT-136) and Granite (CT-132). Did Bee Peak last time, so thought I would do a couple more. Usually I only like to do one activation, but Jupiter Mountain is a short hike (1.5 miles each way, 1200 ft elevation gain) and Grass Mountain is a drive up so OK for two this time.
Up Spunky Canyon Road to the saddle, the trail begins opposite USFS road 6N09, also known as Spunky Edison Road! Start the hike here, after 300 feet or so there is a fork; I took the left which is the steep moto trail to the top. I believe the right fork is less steep and leads around west to a saddle between Jupiter and West Jupiter. Then you would reach the top by following the ridge back east.

Spunky Edison Road 6N09. You could take this up to a saddle, then follow 6N04 west (L) for Burn Benchmark (CT-136) and then a short walk to the top. Not sure if you need 4 wheel drive or not for 6N09.
Drove down and through the nice little town of Green Valley, right at the junction and then up to the saddle where USFS road 6N04 crosses the main road. West goes up Grass Mountain, East is the way to Burn.
You come to a fork and go left on 6N05 to the top.
