Ascent Trip ReportThis was a fun, if wet ascent. Leaving from Hug Point park, I walked south on the highway to Onion Road, and followed a few logging roads to a jeep track that peters out at an overlook on the south face of the mountain. From there, there is a little moderate scrambling and bushwhacking through the forest to the summit, which I assured myself of with GPS and a fair bit of tromping.
