Ascent Trip Report

This was the last of the state park high points in the Tahoe area, minus the Ward Creek Project which is not a park yet. I went to Tahoe City and turned left on Jack Pine Street. You parked near the bottom of this road and hike up to a gated dirt road which allows passage. In a short time, you arrive at the state park boundary. From there you will see station 14 and a map. You continue hiking to station 13 on a old paved section of road. From station 13 there used to be a direct dirt road to the western boundary. It has now been changed to a single track that weaves its way to the western edge. The most pleasant part of the hike was this section. Once on the western edge, you hike north for less than a quarter of a mile and then cross-country for 50 feet or so to the high point. There is no view and it is in a clump of trees slightly higher than the surrounding area. This was the easiest high point that utilized hiking to obtain. This was CA state park number 231
