Ascent Trip Report

I took my family here after a couple days at Buck's Lake for Maria's 6th birthday. We drove in from Lake Almanor on good dirt roads that any car could handle. We probably could have cut a little distance off the hike with a spur road just above Cold Springs closer to Humbug Summit. I had my little one just like the usual picture and it turned out to be a really good hike.
