Ascent Trip ReportI was pretty beat from racing earlier in the day (US 10km trail champs in Laurel springs), but decided to do at least one peak. This made the most sense as it is a "two-fer". Heard it was driveable to 2.7 miles. I only made it 1.4 miles on Fisher peak road before hitting a washout. Definitely could be done in 4 wheel but I was in a rented ford focus :-)
4m round trip run, lots of hawks on the summit.
