Ascent Trip Report

The route up Tikaboo is marked from the end of the road (which goes up beyond the saddle we parked below to hike up Badger Mountain). The marking consisted of foil-covered rock, and colored tape (multiple colors were used with yellow "caution" tape being the most common). We lost the trail on the way back, but it was relatively easy to reacquire since it follows the ridge.

Two things to note - parts are quite steep and on loose rocks (I suspect they would be looser and dustier when the ground is fully dry), and there is a turnoff to the west before reaching the summit of the first ridge which saves about 50 feet of unneeded elevation gain and loss.
