Ascent Trip ReportAfter doing Mount Ellen, I felt I needed more, so I went south of the trailhead, and found a use trail going most of the way to the south summit of Mount Ellen, where there was a communications station with some solar panels. Despite that, it had a great view.
Note that the road to Bull Creek Pass requires high clearance. Beyond that, be careful for sharp rocks. Despite knowing that, I still managed to get a flat.
