Ascent Trip Report

The road to Blue Rock Spring has some minor rough spots, but is not bad overall (high-clearance vehicles should be OK). We parked where we did mostly because I wanted some road walking before we headed up a steep slope without a trail. Once leaving the road, there was some bushwhacking but the terrain in general was better than I had expected. In what could have been the worst sections, we were able to find game trails that made it fairly easy. The summit had great views.
