Ascent Trip Report

coming in from the south, went a mile past a small village of second homes to take the dirt road to the left marked Dixie Mtn - 8 miles. One of the residents there told me to go this way and not make any more left turns once on this road. He also said the road gets worse near the top. Drove in with my van about 3 miles before I decided to turn back as the road became more and more rocky. It'd been easy with a 4x4 and my van probably would have made it, but it was very slow going, and I didn't have the time or desire to hike the rest of the way.
