Ascent Trip Report

From December onwards the roads are closed to get close to the mountain this Devils Lake Trailhead is not accessible. It's possible to ski/hike in from Bachelor ski area but since the area is turned into a nordic center there are no dogs allowed. The only other options I found were to go in through the logging roads Tam Mcarthur rim Trailhead may be accessible. I parked at Jack pine spring. This adds about 30 miles return journey to the base of south sister. If no snow mobile's have have used any of the trails it's a hard slog in.
