Ascent Trip Report

A drive-up to a Tower.

From Hwy #2/exit 452, we drove north on Mountain Road for 1.5km to a right turn on Whitfield Trites Road. north .6km we turned right on TimberLine Road then east .7km to a private driveway (house #185) that leads 60 meters north to the single Communication tower on the ridge. Timberline Road is a beautiful road, just below/paralleling the mountain ridge, with new homes, outstanding views of the valley.

I walked the trail on the East-West wooded ridge looking for "the" HP, nothing obvious, chose a spot just north of the Tower 46.14694,-64.89645.

There are new roads with homes, both sides of the ridge line, not shown on the maps. Another example that the Google Maps are long outdated.
