Ascent Trip ReportPlanned to park at the marked parking lot east to Silver Creek Lodge, but found some negative signs. I followed an unnamed paved road to gain some elevation, attempted to parked near a dirt road junction, but found a fire hydrant, then eventually settled further down where I could park completely off the traffic.
I started via the dirt road, found a ski connector up above, then reached a main ski trail along E ridge. Mud at some spots along the dirt road near the top; light bushwhack near summit.
A broken hollow metal tube could be a leftover of something. I stuck a stick in it (2019-09-28). Photo by Powen Ru.
