Ascent Trip ReportThis NPHP is a class 1 trail walk up an access road. From the Visitor's Center, go north on Hwy 385 until you reach the junction with Hwy 87 and take that right. Take the windy road, passing through some one lane tunnels and bridges along the way, until you see the sign for the Rankin Ridge Lookout Tower. Take a left and drive about half way up the ridge until you reach a parking lot. From the parking lot it's a short hike up the access road to the observation tower (which is locked).
