Ascent Trip Report

Have to park at the closed off gate just outside of the unmanned entrance hut. The park ranger Jeffrey patrols the area frequently, so it’s suggested to leave a note on your dashboard letting him know why you’re there. Can go either way when the road splits... to the left will lead you to the boardwalks, and to the right will lead you through the back way. Recommend wearing long sleeves and pants, due to the high grass and bee flies around. Obviously, the peak itself isn’t much of a “peak”, but the wildlife around the area is worth the exploration alone. Be mindful of possible quick sand in certain areas too!
