Ascent Trip Report

Be careful during your drive to the Cass County highpoint. Although the access road is drivable, I saw many ATV operators enjoying the out-of-doors here on the numerous trails, including the road I was driving on. I was able to park just .2 air miles from the summit and follow a well used ATV trail to the top in 5 minutes after hiking .23 miles. There is absolutely no evidence left of the old Spider Lake Lookout Tower, not even any support anchors, but I did find a benchmark mounted on the end of a 1-foot high metal pipe. The trees block any view, but it is a quick, easy highpoint to bag. I returned to my car in 5 minutes.
