Ascent Trip Report

From Challenge on the LaPorte-Quincy Rd go north approx. 1.5 miles to FSR 19N04 on the right. Follow it approx. 0.6 mile, then branch right with a sign for the Pike County L.O.--1 mile. The summit area is open, much of it unsightly with logging debris. The L.O. is staffed regularly by Ron Foster, who helped me identify some distant landmarks--Sutter Buttes, Mt. Fillmore, Pilot Peak, and Bald Eagle Peak, as well as New Bullard Bar Reservoir closer by. The name "Pike County Peak" relates to the mid-1800s, when the area, including the nearby town of Pike, was lobbying to be named Pike County. However Yuba County became the chosen name, and Pike ended up in Yuba County. There has been a L.O. on Pike County Peak since the 1800s. The current one was removed from Lexington Hill in 1984
