Ascent Trip Report

This was an easy road hike. This is one of a few summits with equipment at the top without a gate on the road, so high-clearance vehicles could drive to the summit plateau. The actual summit is a bit off the road, but a very easy walk (assuming one stays east of the rocky ridge). The views at the summit were better than I expected.

While I had a 4WD, I think one could have driven to the "trailhead" (base of the summit road) with a regular car.
