Ascent Trip Report

At Chilcoot on CA 70 I took CA 284 north to Frenchman Lake, then FSR 24N11 along the west side of the lake to the well marked turnoff to Dixie Mountain, a distance of 7 miles on FSR 24N92Y to within a few hundred feet of the top. The road to the peak was well graded, but steep and rough in a few spots higher up. I visited about half an hour with Arlene at the L.O. before starting back down. The view was diminished by smokey haze from unseen fires. Dixie Mountain is a worthy runner-up to Mt. Ingalls for the Plumas County HP.
