Ascent Trip ReportThis mountain is an easy ascent with a road that takes you to within about 600 yards of the summit where a new tower was being built. Currently, there were no posted signs and the highest point was still outside of any fences, but that could change depending on the construction plans for the tower. The highest point at the time my wife, Geri, and I visited in 2011 was easy to identify, but the summit view was disappointing. The best vistas are found at overlooks much lower on the mountain.
