Ascent Trip Report

Could have ridden a mountain bike all the way to the bushwack. Followed a gated jeep trail past the obvious summit ridge, ascended the ridge, and walked back South to ensure I hit the high ground. High poist appears to be near an old, gnarled tree with signs indicating a "Bear Reserve" on nearby trees. In hindsight, the easiest way up is to veer up the ridgeline to the left (Northbound)as the mountain rises to the left of the trail. The undergrowth is minimal and visibility is excellent until the final push to the summit.
