Ascent Trip Report

The 4.2 miles from the paved road to the lookout is the worst road I have ever driven. I thought the Ford Explorer was going to get stuck a couple of times. There are sharp rocks, wicked turns, amazing ruts, lots of brush, and almost no where to turn out if someone is coming down. Dirt bikers and hikers have been using the ridge trail.

Since I cannot recommend driving the road the trick is finding the trail. It seems like it doesn't cross the road until way the hell down and out there. Perhaps the spur in section 18 can get you within 2-300' vertical of the trail.
