Ascent Trip Report

Easy drive, about 12 miles on a paved road, from the main road to the parking area / trail head.

Short, easy walk to the lookout tower on a groomed gravel path.

It was at dusk & I had the whole area to myself for the remaining sunset. It was very nice until a lightning storm started shortly thereafter.
