Ascent Trip Report

Overnight camping at Chilao Campgrounds on the 4th of July! After getting our campsite, we drove to Waterman Mountain Day Use Area and started the hike. Temperatures were great, and there is tons of shade and every so often nice views. I detoured off the trail to hit Waterman Benchmark, though never did find the actual benchmark itself. Then we made our way over to Waterman Mountain and managed to find the benchmark on top of a pile of rocks. finally we started down going the direction of the old ski runs and grabbed Waterman Mountain North Summit, which is atop a pile of rocks next to a ski lift. On the way down, there was quite a bit of heavy equipment, some abandoned, some appeared not. Afterwards, back to the campsite.
