Ascent Trip Report

I took Fr 134 to its end at a gate. Signage said "no hunting no snowmobile tours no trespassing." I risked that they would not object to an unarmed solitary hiker. The road continues to a meadow with the peak to the west across the meadow. Bushwhack up easier than many--downed trees not too dense and some open areas among trees.
