Ascent Trip Report

From Highway 191, I turned onto the signed road that leads to the Blue Peak Trailhead (Forest Road 184) and drove in about 1/4 miles to where progress was blocked by snow. From there, I walked up the dirt road and then the unsigned McKittrick Trail (Trail #72) to the top. The road and the trail had numerous down trees to contend with; in addition, the road has a fair amount of elevation gain going out to the Blue Peak Trailhead and on the return. Also, I left a new register book in the existing mating cans.
