Ascent Trip ReportDrove up. The last 4.5 miles of road are quite rough. High clearance a must and I think 4wd would be needed if wet. I used my 4wd Low on the way down to save my brakes. Road is also very narrow and to my surprise I saw 4 other 4x4s on it.
Saw a bull moose near the Calispell Peak Creek Marsh. A hawk near the summit circled within 30 feet of my truck and it looked like he was hoping I would flush out a chipmunk or something.
