Ascent Trip Report

Drove Road 600 and Road 4654 to the trailhead, which is a bit obscure. It is located short of a sharp right bend in the road - downhill from where it is shown on the topo - and is marked by two posts that apparently once held a wooden sign and by a small "trail" marker. See the GPS track for detail of the area.

The hike was trail all the way (except for a brief excursion to the actual top), and rather pleasant. I went on to the northern summit, though I don't feel it is necessary in order to claim the peak.
