Ascent Trip Report

Route: Parking area on the left (mile marker 58.02). Started at 6740 ft. There is a gated dirt road right across from the Buckhorn Day Area Use parking. We walked pass the gate and turned left (east) on a trail.

I had this short hike planned because I thought I was going to hike Mt. Wilson on Saturday. Unfortunately it was cancelled due to the weather.

Had to work until about 2 am the day before the hike & padded my blisters that same night. The drive was 1 1/2 hours one way for a total of 3 hours RT. I was running on 2 1/2 hours of sleep and had to work at 5pm to 2am that same day. Pretty easy hike. I was so excited to find that register. This is the first summit I did where I was able to actually see a register & write my name on it. It was AWESOME!
