Ascent Trip Report

The dirt roads out to the saddle were in great shape (suitable for passenger cars), BUT be careful when it rains- the roads can become hidden mud traps with a surface that appears dry, but has mud just below the surface- it was almost enough to trap my 4WD!

The road from the saddle could have been driven (perhaps not the last mile depending on equipment and driver skill), but made for a very enjoyable hike.
