Ascent Trip Report

The road to Shaffer Mountain is located about 8 miles north of Litchfield on U.S. 395, 0.9 mile beyond a historical roadside marker commemorating the Noble Emigrant Trail and 0.2 mile beyond a prominent sign placed by the BLM Eagle Lake field office proclaiming the use of public land. The unsigned road climbs easily in 6.4 miles to a locked gate, from which it is a short walk to the open summit. Once the site of a Calfire L.O., only a clutter of communication equipment and sheds remain.
