Ascent Trip Report

Great newer logging road leads you to about 600 ft and 0.25 directly below the summit ridge. Park here and ascend up though a very recently thinned forest (like days fresh cut). Nice views. After tagging all three summit areas we drove south on a progressively worse road to the summit of Stensgar Mountain. Don't bother with it. The lookout was removed several years ago, and replaced by a number of shinny new comm towers. It is not worth the time and tire abuse to visit. 1.0 mile RT with 800 ft of gain.
