Ascent Trip Report

Fun little hike! Park on Route 423 at an obvious pull-out about a quarter mile west of route 196. Hike back up the road about 100 yards to the gate. Hike up the grass road about a half mile until it ends. If you head straight north and bushwack for about 100 yards, you will hit the cliff of the Kistler Ledge. It is an easy 15 foot cliff that is a lot of fun (2nd class scramble). Bushwack east to the high point, it is a rock field that is obviously higher than the surrounding area. If you would rather scramble up something less steep, find a trail that heads east from where the road ends and hike in about 300 yards and head north. You will find the ledge about 200 feet into the brush. Scramble up, wander about until you find the highest ground, then return the way you came, or head west to the cliff and back out.
