Ascent Trip Report

Tried Wickiup first, but the No Trespassing sign when entering the Astoria watershed seemed too threatening. Drove toward Elk the gate and parked. Easy road walk with one quite steep section. Short bushwhack on the old road bed that shows on the maps to the summit after the final clearcut. The apparent shortcut in the GPS track was some sort of glitch.
