|Date:||Wednesday, December 15, 2010|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||2620 ft / 798 m|
Ascent Trip ReportI approached Peak 2620 from the Middle Fork of Foots Creek Road. This is a good road that connects the East Fork with the West Fork of Foots Creek Road. I drove up to the high point of the road and parked next to a drive way on the south side of the road. Note, Peak 2300 to the north is accessed from the same parking spot. From the parking spot I walked west on the road a couple hundred feet and then bailed off into the forest to the south. The forest has been thinned and brushed and it is easy hiking under a forest canopy. I followed an old ditch for a couple hundred yards and then just headed up the the ridge above. Once on the ridge I followed it towards the peak. About half way there the ridge took a little dip and I found an old logging road in the little saddle. One fork of the old road headed towards the peak so I followed it to the base of the hill where the summit is located. I then hiked up the steep slope to the summit. No brush issues on this hike. No views because of the forest.
