Ascent Trip Report

FR 87 ( an excellent FR) passes within a mile of the hp. A unmarked track (noted on my map as 87V head south along the west side of the peak. After maybe half a mile, a metal marker forbids further motor travel straight ahead, but I took the remnants of a forest track left (east) another few hundred feet before parking. I headed up the old track for about 6-700 yards before bushwhacking on a GPS heading.Lots of downed trees slowed me on the ascent. I avoided many of them by heading slightly right of my GPS heading on the way down.
