Ascent Trip Report

Inadvertently approached from the east end of Road 1168, as suggested by Google Maps. It appears that the officially recommended approach is from the west end of this road. Our route was all in decent condition, easily managed by most low-clearance vehicles, although parts of the road could use more gravel, and moderately rough rocks are are showing through in a few places.

There was very little snow on the road, all of which is along the shoulder and easily bypassed.

The trail did have some fairly deep snow drifts in places, which didn't pose much of a challenge since the grade is not severe and the snow wasn't too icy.

Unfortunately, we were stuck in low clouds for much of the hike. Although the clouds did lift somewhat after we reached the summit, they still obscured the high Cascades, so the views were not great. It would be worth returning to this one sometime.
