Ascent Trip Report

We drove 6.3 mi north along the paved Bowman Lake Road after turning off Hwy 20, then turned right (east) at the Grouse Ridge Road sign for almost another 6-mi of 2-wheel-drive (bumpy) dirt road to parking area below locked gate going up to Grouse Ridge. After walking past the locked gate, we saw a boarded up fire lookout with a nice place to eat lunch out of the sun.
