Ascent Trip Report

Hiked up from the beginning of the 4x4 road. Found a rotting partially torn apart 4 point buck carcass just above the lake, no sign of bears or cougars though.

The road up to the trailhead is very poor, I wouldnt recommend beating up any car to save yourself the little extra bit of walking involved.
