Ascent Trip Report

We headed East of Ukiah to about mile post 18, where forest road (FR) 5226 heads south. It is about 12 miles or so up to the tower. The road is marked 5226 a couple of times but it forks occasionally. If the road is not marked 5226 stay on the main path. After 4.5 miles or so, a road takes off to the right (uphill). Stay on the lower road.
We tried this earlier in our small car and put a hole in our oil-pan. AAA road insurance paid off that day, so we did it in our Jeep. A car can make it, just take it very slow.
The tower itself is cool, the summit is okay.
The coordinates in earlier reports were adaquate.
