Ascent Trip Report

A typical rainy day in November. After a failed approach attempt via the Flying M Ranch, we connected to the Ken Jones approach. The roads were well-maintained with occasional pot holes. As anticipated due to hunting season, we found the gate open that guards Trask Mt. Road. 11.4 miles beyond the gate we found the cleverly positioned tree stumps that hide the abandoned logging road leading toward the summit. We encountered no vehicles or people once past the gate, perhaps because we were late in the day on a weekend. Drive time from downtown Portland is about 1hr 45min if you don't miss a turn.
