Ascent Trip ReportWe parked at the standard parking area off the paved road just past the visitor center and there are signs to the gold mine and the peak. We took the Masiduri Trail south and up to the gold site hill got turned around and headed back south then east on the Masiduri Trail intersecting the maintenance road that takes you to the summit.
There is a large white locked gate preventing you to the summit for an easy nabbing. Those that say it is an easy bypass are crazy. Every known thorny plant ever evolved is the bushwhack and it is not pleasant to from here. The summit has a tower and fence and a lot of concrete. Good luck at what is exactly the natural highest point. If you go past the fence prepare to be stuck with spines.
There is a grassy slope just NE of the summit with less cacti and other prickly obstructions but no clear path but one can get to the rocks at the fence. The best route is the road but you have to get to the road around the fence and that path is very sticky.
A disappointing way to get a country high point nobody described it well making me wonder how many logging the country high point have actually gone around the gate or was the gate open in the past?
Took the maintenance road all the way down was a bit faster
