Ascent Trip ReportI hoped to approach via FR206 (Walker Mountain Road), a gravel road that follows the ridge of Walker Mountain. However, the road was gated just beyond the Big Bend Overlook. GPS said the summit was 5 miles beyond. The road should be walkable, given the level ridgeline of Walker Mountain, but that was too far for me this late in the afternoon. Check with the Jefferson National Forest to see when the gate might be open.
